“These seven gentlemen are the finest UCSD has to offer, and we look forward to watching them grow as individuals and become initiated brothers of Beta Theta Pi,” the colony at UCSD said of its new pledge class.
The award-winning John and Nellie Wooden Institute for Men of Principle is an incredible opportunity for initiated Betas that focuses on the ritual of Beta Theta Pi and becoming a better leader. The Wooden Institute allows Betas to interact with brothers and Friends of Beta from across North America. Participants share ideas, dissect Fraternity ritual, partake in challenging activities that focus on leadership skills, learn more about the history of Beta Theta Pi and reflect on the Fraternity’s heritage. Most importantly, participants have fun with other initiated Betas in Oxford, Ohio!
Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and you must be an initiated member to attend. Participation is open to 14 members per chapter with a maximum of three members per chapter/colony in the summer sessions and a maximum of two members per chapter/colony in the winter session. Because quarter schools can’t attend all sessions, they may send four and/or five members to each of the last two sessions.
The Wooden Institute was endowed and named by Carol and James A. Collins, UCLA ’50, in honor of legendary coach John R. Wooden,Purdue ’32, and his beloved wife Nellie.
This program received the Most Outstanding Use of a Foundation Grant Award from the North-American Interfraternity Conference in 1999.

Back in December, the General Fraternity shared the story of Kylie Myers (http://on.fb.me/1I0Njvv), the daughter of Mark Myers, Eastern Kentucky ’90, who was battling cancer and wanted to raise awareness for childhood cancers by participating in a public service announcement in Times Square. Kylie has since tragically passed away, but her legacy lives on as her billboard now lights up New York City. The video below is what people will see in Times Square.

At San Jose State’s Fraternal Values Awards Ceremony, the Betas were awarded the Best in the Interfraternity Council Award. After winning, the group shared the following on its Facebook page:
“This would not have been possible without our brothers and pledges who constantly strive for excellence and our friends and alumni who continue to support our growth. Thank you to our interfraternal community and its support! We will continue to work just as hard and leave a mark on San Jose State’s campus.”
