Brothers of Beta Alpha Chapter are passionate about making a difference.

As the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, THON is committed to providing financial and emotional support to children and families impacted by childhood cancer. The year-long fundraising and awareness efforts culminate in a 46-hour dance marathon that organizations with the highest fundraising and involvement are invited to compete in.

Beta Alpha Chapter partnered with Kappa Alpha Theta to support two THON children, Jazzy and Levi.

In addition to their successful THON fundraising efforts, Beta Alpha Chapter, in conjunction with Penn State’s chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha Incorporated and Delta Zeta, hosted their Intersecting Greek Cultures event. At this event, members of the IFC, NPC, and NPHC communities came together in an effort to foster collaboration, understanding, and bridge the gap between the groups. Discussions were also held around terms, actions, and behaviors that may be insensitive to members of the different communities to prevent future occurrences or incidents. This event helped spark meaningful conversations between all attendees.
