As we look towards our 105th Charter Day Celebration, we have given birth to many who have kept our principles true. Since the first mark of expansion on Feb. 6, 1914, the Brothers of Beta Chapter have striven to uphold the Four Cardinal Principles. We, the Undergraduate Brothers of Beta Chapter and members of 103rd anniversary planning committee are cordially inviting you to join us as we commemorate 105 years of service to the grandest Fraternity on Earth.

On February 6, 1914, Brothers Oscar James Cooper, William Griffith Brannon and John M. McMorries were dispatched to Lincoln University to establish BETA Chapter despite the faculty's restriction on expansion.
Mrs. Charlotte T. Wilson, better known as "Lottie B." Wilson, who had become familiarized with these men and their intentions, aided them in their quest. She opened her humble home to them and that same evening, BETA Chapter with the induction of 19 charter members was established.
From that memorable evening to the present, BETA Chapter has been known as the "First Stepping Stone of Omega's Expansion." As the Fraternity flourished as a whole, so did BETA Chapter in its own ways.
