Along with the initiation of 11 new brothers among 4 pledge classes, the new chapter was given the designation Beta Kappa, along with all rights and privileges of a chapter in good standing.

Eleven Brothers from the Zeta (San Francisco), Xi (UC Davis), Iota (Sacramento), Alpha Rho (formerly at Penn State) and Alpha Kappa (Southern Methodist University – Dallas, TX) Chapters were in attendance for the ritual weekend to welcome the new Brothers into the fraternity.
