Theta Zeta is an active chapter of Sigma Chi founded in 1983 at what was then Bridgewater State College. Theta Zeta was the 205th of 284 chapters to be chartered into our International Fraternity. As of the Fall 2015 semester, the chapter is comprised of 29 active undergraduates of Bridgewater State University, and a large and professionally diverse alumni base. A member of the North Atlantic province, Theta Zeta enjoys close proximity to our brothers at Bentley University, Boston University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University.
Theta Zeta has won three J. Dwight Peterson Significant Chapter Gold Awards in the last four years and are determined to bring home a Peterson Gold this year. Theta Zeta has also been a Thomas Cowan Bell Chapter five years running.
“The principle and object of its organization were not to be different from those of other similar college societies. The purposes were praiseworthy and honorable, being the formation of a social and literary club, where young men, selected for their high moral character, mental endowments, literary tastes and congenial dispositions, could meet for the purpose of furthering their interests while at college. Such a society, we believed, would be of great value to its members, in the formation of valuable friendships, in the cultivation of social virtues, in promoting a taste for literature and in aiding each other to obtain the rewards and prizes usually offered by colleges to young men of high and honorable standing in their classes. These were the purposes which the founders of society had in view.”
– Founder Isasac M. Jordan, August 28, 1884
