Motto

For over 50 years the Brothers of Beta Phi Omega have followed the simple motto: Fraternity, Family, School.

Fraternity

As a band of brothers, we recognize the importance of having people around you to help achieve your goals throughout life. While striving to accomplish our own dreams as individuals, we help all brothers to achieve theirs along the way.

Family

It may sound corny, but belonging to a brotherhood is a lot like forming a new family. Having people you are able to rely upon without question is an invaluable relationship to have.

School

While being the fun side of college life, we also encourage all members to have rigorous study routines. As proof of our commitment to academics, last year we had the highest GPA average out of all fraternities on campus!

Philanthropy

Beta Phi Omega has proudly supports United Rehabilitation Services (URS) of Greater Dayton. URS offers a wide variety of services to children, adults, and seniors with developmental and acquired disabilities from all over the Greater Dayton Region. Beta Phi’s primary philanthropy event is Row-a-thon, in which brothers will spend 24 hours rowing inside of the moat outside of Wright State University’s Allyn Hall. Row-a-thon usually occurs in the first few weeks of fall semester and the last few weeks of spring semester. In addition to Row-a-thon Beta Phi hosts smaller philanthropy events during the school year.
