President’s Corner

There has never been a better time to be a brother of Theta Chi. Thanks to the hard work and

generous donations of over 70 years of alumni, the brotherhood has a beautiful new house to

call home. The renovation was completed in 2013 and includes three new bedrooms, two

multipurpose rooms, and a remodeled porch. The brotherhood is incredibly grateful for this gift

and takes great strides to preserve it for future generations.

 

The brothers of our fraternity are involved with many other clubs and organizations around Grounds,

including Madison House, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the Whethermen, O-

Records, and many others. Academically, our fraternity consistently scores within the top third

of all fraternities, which consistently scores higher than the overall average of UVa students.

Our chapter’s philanthropy focuses on mental health, a cause which the entire brotherhood

is devoted to. Over the past two years, our chapter has donated nearly $12,000 to the National

Alliance on Mental Illness and On Our Own, a Charlottesville non-profit that provides free

mental health treatment and services to Charlottesville residents. Additionally, our brothers

volunteer with the Habitat for Humanity and the Madison House HELP Line.

Following the death of chapter president Quentin Alcorn (’16), alumni of our chapter

established a scholarship in his name. The Quentin Alcorn Memorial Scholarship serves to

recognize those at the University of Virginia who embody Quentin’s dedication, selfless service,

love of learning, and his capacity for fun and humor, as well as ensuring his memory endures within the brotherhood and at the University.

 

Our chapter has grown immensely in recent years. Our brothers have worked hard to build a

fraternity that we are proud of, and we look to build upon that success in the coming years.
