Beta Theta Pi is fortunate to have an excellent reputation and relationship with members of John Carroll University's faculty, staff, and administration. Some of these individuals were gracious enough to provide a short statement describing their interactions with us. Please review their comments below.
"I am pleased to endorse Beta Theta Pi. I conclude that the values displayed are compatible with our expectations of John Carroll students. While the stated values are certainly important, my investigation of the behavior and conduct of the young men on our campus associated with Beta Theta Pi is the foundation of my support. They have demonstrated that they are men of principle."
- Rev. Robert L. Niehoff, S.J., Ph.D.
"In a very brief time the members of Beta Theta Pi have re-defined 'fraternity' at John Carroll University. 'He's a Beta' is shorthand for 'responsible and respectful, dynamic, engaging, trustworthy, and acts with integrity.' Without exception the members I have encountered have been outstanding student leaders dedicated to personal growth and to cultivating a positive campus community. Individually and as a group, Beta Theta Pi has been a great asset to, and significantly enriched, the Carroll community."
- Paula Fitzgerald
Associate Director and Coordinator of Retreats, Campus Ministry
"I find that the men of Beta embody all the attributes consistent with the 'cura personalis' ideal of the Jesuits. They are committed to the development of themselves and their fraternity across a variety of dimensions and, at the same time, they recognize their responsibilities to a world much bigger than themselves and their organization."
- Andrew M. Welki, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Economics
"I have been nothing but impressed by the leadership, service, academic success, and commitment to the University by the members of Beta Theta Pi. We are grateful for the leadership and commitment the Betas have exhibited."

"I have come to deeply appreciate the spirituality and commitment of the Beta community at John Carroll. They participate in liturgy together, and they strengthen each other and set an example of how to support one another through difficult times. Individually and collectively, the Betas are a highly respected and competent group of young men. I feel certain that the leadership demonstrated by the Betas has had a profound effect on our community, and is a continuing source of excellent mentoring for new Beta members."
- Gail Roussey
Coordinator of Liturgy, Campus Ministry
"Beta Theta Pi consistently represents some of the most committed collegiate leaders and advisors that I have ever encountered. Their students demonstrate the leadership characteristics that our institution values most, giving their time for others and taking action when needed to better their community. These exceptional young men have quickly become role models that have made a significant and positive impact on many students and organizations on this campus."
- Heidi Razavi
Coordinator of Personalized Visits, Office of Admission
"The members of Beta Theta Pi share a common bond of brotherhood, leadership, and principle. The guys are also polite, friendly, and will go out of their way to help! They truly live up to the Jesuit motto of 'Men for Others.'"
