The Alumni Quest
Your quest for Theta Xi does not end upon your initiation, nor does it fade after your graduation. It should continue for life. Over the years many have stated their belief in the value of fraternities. This belief, based as it is on the personal experiences of the individual, can be held for a variety of reasons. There is, however, a common and overriding theme universal to all fraternities: a search for brotherhood.
The degree to which brotherhood has developed varies from chapter to chapter throughout the entire fraternity system. Our shared goal is to develop “the brotherhood” among members. This concept refers to our ability to accept other without reference to financial or social status, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability or political belief. We also seek to offer friendship when friendship is needed, and to assist others in realizing their full potential in life.
Towards this end, alumni involve themselves in alumni clubs and alumni associations, participate in alumni activities, and look after the interests of the chapters. Alumni associations serve as property-owning corporations and advisory boards for active chapters. Alumni clubs offer social events and look after the general interests of the Fraternity in their area. Numerous alumni are also engaged as Delegates to the Grand Lodge (Chapter Advisors), national committee members, Directors and officers of the Grand Lodge, and Trustees of the Theta Xi Foundation. Alumni are the primary source of experience and knowledge needed to assist each chapter. Giving continuing support to Theta Xi in energy and resources is the greatest gift alumni can offer. Bridging the division between the generations instills student members with understanding of and pride in the spirit of Theta Xi.
