Beta Sigma Theta is Born

Theta Chapter had polled its alumni and discussed all possibilities with the holders of the house - the Honorary Alumni. Details of these actions are kept on permanent file in the 1962-1974 Memorial Scrapbook. After much consideration, attempts at compromise and deliberation, Theta formally withdrew from National on April 9, 1973 to become a local fraternity. The active membership was already well-known on campus as Beta Sigs, all alumni from Theta Chapter received the option of full recognition from the "new" fraternity, hence we became Beta Sigma Theta. On June 6, 1973, Beta Sigma Theta received official recognition by Michigan Technological University.
