Dear Alumni and Friends of the Zeta Alpha Chapter of Theta Chi,
We have received official notice (and you may have heard by now) from Slippery Rock University that there will be Homecoming “Out of this World” activities associated with the 2021 Homecoming to be held October 15-16, 2021.
In anticipation of hopefully having a homecoming event, we have been working with the Alumni Board to cooperate and coordinate.
Today on behalf of the the Zeta Alpha Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity, as we did in 2019, we would like to invite you to the 2021 Homecoming Celebration at Slippery Rock University hosted by the brothers the Zeta Alpha Chapter and funded in part by the Zeta Alpha Alumni Board.
We hope that you come and participate in all of the activities on October 16 including the parade that begins at 10:00 a.m. we will have most of our brothers participating in the parade. A complete list of activities can be found by clicking this link.
Since tailgating can begin 3 hours before game time between SRU and Indiana University of PA which is 1:00 p.m. a few of the chapter brothers will begin setting up for tailgating at about 9:30 a.m. and any alumni or friends who would like to help us set up are welcome to come and help at that time.
Tailgating will take place in the parking lot below Mihalik-Thompson Stadium.
Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided but please feel free to bring what you would like. Please follow the guideline set by the university that can be reviewed here by clicking this link.
We do not have a specific booth location to share because they will not be assigned until 2 weeks before the event but we will be flying the Theta Chi flag and will be easy to find!
We had a great time interacting with the alumni in June at the golf outing and look forward to spending more time with alumni in October. The chapter brothers are eager to see you for another great Homecoming Celebration.
As a reminder Slippery Rock University requires face coverings in all buildings and select tented events.
Brother Cooper Collins

The Zeta Alpha Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity was established on Slippery Rock State College campus on July 11, 1964 with 38 founding members. It thrived until May 25, 1989. Since then, the alumni brothers have keep in communication and participated in events maintaining the ties of brotherhood over 28 years believing that we could do the work necessary to bring the beliefs, values and brotherhood we enjoyed back to the campus of Slippery Rock University.
On September 30, 2017, Theta Chi returned to Slippery Rock University as a colony and began to “redefine the fraternity experience” on the campus at Slippery Rock.
On April 7, 2018 the Grand Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity approved the petition of the Zeta Alpha Colony and approved the re-chartering of the Zeta Alpha Chapter.
On April 29, 2018, the Installation, Chartering Ceremony and Banquet occurred and the Zeta Alpha Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity returned to the campus of Slippery Rock University
We would be remiss if we did not extend a well deserved congratulations to the young men of the Zeta Alpha colony for their hard work over the last 6 months to bring this dream to a reality! Congratulations on a job well done!
The chapter will continue to need our help as they grow. We look forward to helping them develop and set high standards for themselves and other fraternities and sororities on campus.
The Creed of Theta Chi
I believe in Theta Chi, its traditions and its ideals. Born of sturdy manhood, nurtured by resolute men, ennobled by a high and sacred purpose, it has taken its place among the educational institutions of America as a promoter of knowledge, an advancer of culture and a builder of character.
It inspires true friendship: teaches Truth, Temperance and Tolerance, extols virtue, exacts harmony, and extends a helping hand to all who seek it.
I believe in the primacy of Alma Mater; in the usefulness of my Fraternity, in its influence and its accomplishments and I shall do all in my power to perpetuate its ideals, thereby serving my God, my country and my fellow-man. ~ Frank H. Schrenk K ’15
