The Zeta Omega chapter of Beta Theta Pi, dedicated to developing men of principle for a principled life, is preparing for a much anticipated spring 2012 rush as they look to take roughly two dozen new members into the organization. “Rush” begins on Tuesday, February 14 and ends with “bid day” on Tuesday, February 21.
We are more than excited for this year’s rush, and we look forward to adding an exceptional new class of young gentlemen,” said chapter president, Chad Dunham.
The young men we are expecting are stellar individuals. We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s rush class made up of gentlemen, scholars, athletes, leaders…men from all walks of life,” said chapter recruitment chair, David Bittner.
Since the chapter’s foundation in 2004, Zeta Omega has initiated 194 active members. Those gentlemen have together created a respectable organization. In 2010 and 2011, the chapter was the recipient of the John Reily Knox Award, the highest honor given to a chapter of Beta Theta Pi. Most recently, ZO Beta was recognized by the North-American Interfraternity Conference with its Award of Distinction (2011), one of only four fraternity chapters across North America.
“I am continually impressed with this group of young men,” said United States Senator Richard Lugar (Denison ’54). “They are a shining example of living the great Beta principles and values. They certainly deserve the continued support of parents, friends, and area alumni. I look forward to hearing the next great success story from this rising star in the west!"
