Alpha Theta Chapter
MIT

$3.9 million raised


Summary

While the brotherhood and chapter were strong, 532 Beacon Street was showing
its age and was in need of renovation. An extensive and thorough study was undertaken
by the Alpha Theta Sigma Chi Corporation, which considered many options
and factors. The study concluded that a renovation of 532 Beacon Street was not only
possible, but would yield an excellent living and learning environment for future generations
of MIT students. In addition to providing things such as updated infrastructure
systems, a renovation would allow Alpha Theta to offer a first-class home space reflecting
the exemplary nature of the brotherhood, and would be in line with the needs and
expectations of modern day students.

Sigma Chi’s home at 532 Beacon Street is a beautiful facility that, thanks to its renovations,
will provide a top-notch environment for the 21st century, along with a more
spacious living experience through the addition of a fifth floor (spreading roughly
the same number of brothers in the house over a larger number of bedrooms and
total square footage).

Features

  • Bedrooms added to fifth floor
  • Updated/new electrical, plumbing,
    heating
  • 21st century computing/electronic
    device support
  • Accessibility improvements, including
    elevator to second floor
  • Energy-efficient windows and insulation
  • Upgraded bathrooms and kitchen
  • Updated/enhanced safety features
  • Interior/exterior restoration

“In November we opened our doors to the MIT community and our alumni to see the stunning results and formally rededicate the chapter house. Thanks to the generosity, dedication, and hard work of countless people, many generations in the future will be able to call 532 Beacon Street their home, too.”
