Chi Theta Chi is a cooperative house that split apart from the Theta Chi Fraternity over thirty years ago. The house thrives on a strong legacy of co-op living that has a deep culture of community and tradition. Chi Theta Chi is a private title house, which means that the house is owned by the Alumni Board. This means that we have non-standard furniture and we can paint our own walls, but we also have an added responsibility that requires more work. We hold a work week one week prior to the start of classes fall quarter and two work weekends at the beginning of winter and spring. During work days every resident is required to work on the house from 9 to 5 on projects around the house, which is a lot of work and also a lot of fun.

Pre-assignment RequirementsLiving in Chi Theta Chi requires more work than other co-ops, so pre-assignment also requires slightly more work.
To get pre-assigned into Chi Theta Chi, applicants must participate in a Work Day (TBA) or complete the equivalent five hours of work in the house prior to the Work Day. You must also take a tour of the house. If you are abroad or cannot come to work day, please contact a staff member (see contact information below).
For abroad students:
We will have them contact us and work out an acceptable task to do from abroad. (ex. a group rowed out to the middle of a lake in Madrid and took a picture of themselves spelling XOX out). We have covered this in our answers to the website questions.
For students already in other co-ops:
They will still be required to come to Work Day (TBA)
Regular Draw RequirementsRequirements for drawing into Chi Theta Chi are the same as the pre-assignment criteria above.
Requirements and Agreements as a ResidentResidents are required to attend work week prior to the start of fall quarter and work weekends on the first weekend of winter and spring quarter. Work days consist of working on house improvements, projects, and cleaning from 9 to 5. Residents are required to participate in a cook or a clean shift in the kitchen once a week for approximately 2-3 hours. They must also complete a Sunday kitchen clean once per quarter.
Finally, all residents have a house job assigned quarterly that they must complete once per week that take about 1 hour.
