Kappa Sigma Philanthropy Events
The Beta-Chi Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity hosts a plethora of philanthropy events, both on campus and held at the chapter house. In the past semesters, the Beta-Chi chapter has sold root beer floats on campus, as well as giving out hot chocolate the week of finals. The big-ticket item that the house does annually is their Oktoberfest celebration. At Oktoberfest, anyone who buys a ticket is treated to a hot cooked dinner that includes pretzel, bratwurst, cheese, and beans. There is also a raffle that any is allowed to enter as long as they purchase a ticket.
