Theta Xi

Zoo possesses a culture of excellence in both academics and social environments. We strive to succeed in our majors, and always provide help to brothers who need it. We are deeply involved in other campus activities as well, including engineering honors societies and club sports teams.


We host several philanthropic events throughout the year as a way to show our appreciation for the campus and surrounding community. One of our signature events is “Dog Days of Finals” where students are invited to pet service dogs to relieve stress. We also do an annual cleanup of the Oakwood Cemetery, and this year hosted a fundraising event with Five Guys Burgers.


Our most important attribute however, is how close we all are with each other. We all share a deep love for this house and each other. On any random afternoon, you can find several of our brothers kicking back in the formal room. If the weather is nice outside, chances are some guys are “Lazy Landing” on our front lawn, soaking up the sun. More often than not, most of us end up eating dinner together after a long day of classes. And of course, we all look forward to our year end camping trip on Lake George. We believe that few houses can form such special bonds as ours. This house for most of us is more than that, it’s a home.
