Beta Theta Pi

Beta Theta Pi House
Established 
1927

Beta Theta Pi was built for the fraternity but currently houses first-year students in dorm-style rooms with fraternity meeting rooms in the basement.

History & Architecture

Beta Theta Pi was the first fraternity to build uphill following the 1925 plan for the new Fraternity Row.

An architecturally unique campus hall, Beta House was the residence of Denison Trustee and former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar ’54 of Indiana, who continues to remain involved with the college and Denison’s Beta chapter.
