Athletics, Activities, and Involvement

Athletics

Betas are very active in varsity sports at Wabash. We have athletes in the following sports:

9 Football players, 3 Track and Field/Cross Country Runners/Throwers, 4 Baseball Players, 2 Soccer Players, 3 Basketball Players, 2 Golfers, and 1 Tennis player. Nearly every brother in the house plays on a varsity team!

Activities

From playing varsity sports, to playing in theater productions, Beta Theta Pi is involved in nearly every activity on campus. Betas even have the tendency to lead others to follow in their pursuit of excellence; Betas have started countless clubs, initiatives, and community service projects both on and off campus. At Beta Theta Pi, there is always something to do with your brothers!

Campus Involvement

Betas are active in almost every club on campus, with each Beta being involved in (on average) 4 clubs. Within those clubs, 6 Betas are the President of a club, 6 Betas are the Vice President of a club, and 3 Betas are the Treasurer of a club. One Beta is even the official commentator for the online broadcasts of Wabash College Basketball!

Sphinx Club

The Sphinx Club is the oldest continuous selective student honorary society at Wabash College.  Membership is limited to juniors and seniors and students are selected by their peers based on academics and campus involvement.  21 Betas have served as president of the honorary since its founding in 1921 and numerous others have been elected to membership.  Five of the original 21 founding members of the club were Betas:  Richard H. Bostwick '22, Frank H. Cox '22, Harold E. Perkins '22, John K. Ruckleshaus '22, and Edmund K. McComb '23.
