History of Beta Pi

Founded in January 1948 by veterans of the Second World War, our chapter provides a large residential and member experience year-round. We dine together, live together, and provide a platform for personal and organizational growth to unlock the full potential for each man. Tekes live a life of values steeped in our Declaration of Principles, helping each member integrate LOVE, CHARITY, and ESTEEM into his daily life. Learn More

Campus Involvement

Brother Grayson Huggins at Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Academics We want all of our graduates to leave Georgia Tech as better thinkers and problem solvers and we cultivate our development through surrounding ourselves with a diverse group of talented brothers. Today you can find Beta Pi Tekes studying majors in each of Georgia Tech's colleges, from Computer Science to Biomedical Engineering to Business Administration.

Our Tekes are President's Scholars, Dean's Scholars, members of the Denning Technology & Management program, BS/MS students, Double Majors, Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants.

Social/Athletics Tekes at Georgia Tech are front and center in many campus organizations and in intramural athletics. Our brothers value organizations and events that build character, provide valuable leadership experiences, and expand their student networks. Our registered parties are legendary. Some of the biggest social events we hold are Fall Fest, Polar Beach and TKE Glow.

Philanthropy We believe it is our duty to give back to the broader Georgia Tech and Atlanta Community and our chapter is consistently one of the top philanthropic chapters on campus and among all TKE chapters, directly raising over $100,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, over $50,000 for childhood cancer research working with St Baldrick’s volunteer and donor supported charity and have helped donate thousands of meals to front line workers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Any graduating Teke will tell you that philanthropy was one of their most rewarding and enjoyable college experiences.

Sam is a 4th year Chemical Engineering major from Powder Springs, GA

"My favorite thing about being a Teke is the people that have been introduced to my life since I’ve been a part of this organization. The friends and relationships I’ve formed as a Teke have enriched my life and my college experience greatly. Having this network of people with much more experience than I do has been vital not just academically, but personally as well. The people that I’ve been able to surround myself with by being a Teke have helped shape me into the person I am today and I’ll carry their influence with me for the rest of my life."

"I came to college hesitant of joining a fraternity, but when I saw the brothers here when I was a freshmen at rush, I saw a unique family with no member quite the same as another. It was a no-brainer when I saw how much I laughed and bonded with everyone so quickly. This laughter has continued with each incoming class throughout the past three years I have been a brother. I can easily say this place has given me some of my fondest memories at Georgia Tech, from football tailgates, to Greek Weeks, to Polar Beaches, to just hanging out with my best friends on a Tuesday afternoon."
