Beta Mu Celebrates 40 Years

On Friday, February 24, 2012, nearly 200 Beta Mu alumnae arrived from all over the United States and as far away as Tokyo, Japan, to celebrate the 1972 charter of the Tri Delta Beta Mu chapter at Mississippi State University. 

Weekend events included a Friday night welcome reception, a Saturday champagne brunch at the Hunter Henry Alumni Center on MSU's campus and a tour of the Beta Mu house on sorority row.

During the Saturday morning brunch, alumnae and collegians were treated to a video of memories, a candlelight ceremony recognizing each pledge class, a presentation by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and one of its former patients, Beta Mu collegian Ashley Rhodes, and special guest speaker, the Honorable Sharion Harp Aycock, Beta Mu alumna and the first Mississippi female United States District Court Judge.

Beta Mu alumnae were invited back to the chapter house for a tour and group photo. Many collegians were on hand to greet their older sisters with a collection of Tri Delta Recruitment songs, including one written and sung by the Chapter President for preference night. In honor of the 40th anniversary, Beta Mu alumnae raised nearly $3,000 in donations for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This brings the total raised by Beta Mu to $500,000 since 1998 when the chapter began its signature project "Frats at Bat," now known as "Swinging for St. Jude." The weekend ended on the intramural fields on Sunday with "Swinging for St. Jude."
