Can You Put a Price Tag on Belonging?

Do you remember those commercials done by Visa which pointed out things in life that are priceless? Our version would go something like this: Four-year degree at Penn State: $50,000. Cost of living at Beta Sig: $300/month. Value of having one of my fraternity brothers introduce me to my wife and the mother of my three children: priceless.

How can you ever replicate the experiences and environment of Beta Sigma Beta? There are things that have happened at 255 E. Fairmount Ave. that could not have happened anywhere else. Belonging to Beta Sig at Penn State means being related to something that is beyond other relationships or affiliations.

So, here are a few things you can do today to make sure that time doesn’t run out before you let your brothers know what Beta Sigma Beta means to you:

    • Send us an update to post on our website and in our next Beta Sig News. Send your email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You may think, “Yeah, no one really wants to hear that stuff.” WRONG! This is how one fraternity brother was able to save the life of his daughter. Think big picture here and send us your news!!

    • Call a brother today. Let him know what is happening with you and find out what is happening with him. Make plans to return together for Homecoming. 
    • Help us financially support our ability to keep the house running and our alumni returning for Homecoming and other events. We have set a goal of 100 donors for our 2014-15 Annual Fund giving year. Currently, our Honor Roll shows 1 donor. Thank you to Brother Robert Marks '82 for your recent gift.

For some of us, our days at 255 E. Fairmount Ave. are years behind us. But in the words of Mary Schmich, those years made us who we are today. “Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. The older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.”
