Our chapter has a long history. Originally founded as a chapter of Alpha Sigma Chi, we became part of Beta in 1879, when Alpha Sigma Chi merged with Beta Theta Pi. Our chapter was originally designated the Beta Epsilon chapter, but the original Sigma had become inactive, so William Raimond Baird (Stevens 1878) decided to make our chapter the Sigma instead. Our house, located at 812 Castle Point Terrace, Hoboken, New Jersey has a history in itself. It was the previous home to Hoboken's Mayor, and is supposedly haunted.

Beta Theta Pi was founded at Miami University in Oxford Ohio in the year 1839. Since then it has grown into one of the largest and most prestigious fraternities in the country. Our fraternity has grown to include over 135 chapters nationwide with over 8,000 undergraduate members and over 130,000 living alumni. Many great men and leaders in our community are members of Beta Theta Pi including John Wooden, Adam West, Thomas McGuire, Bill Bowerman, and William R. Baird. There are currently five Beta alumni serving as United States Congressmen, and six members who have won the Congressional Medal of Honor.
