Chi Beta Chi
Chi Beta Chi is a social club that was established in 1989. Our mascot is the eagle, our letters are XBX, and our colors are purple and gold. Our mission statement is to provide opportunities for our members to become active socially, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Chi Beta has so many opportunities for our members to serve God and to serve others through mission trips to Wisconsin, the City of Children, and through various service projects around Henderson. We strive to be competitive in intramurals, Makin’ Music, Homecoming, and we seek to grow through retreats, meetings, and by being an encouragement to one another. The qualities we look for in our members are: Character, Leadership, Service, Tradition, and Royalty.
Omega Chi is the newest club on campus. Established in 2022, we are confined by nothing but strive to excel in everything. Our motto is “For the pursuit of excellence.” This club was created by students who do not fit the mold of existing stereotypes. Here, you are free to be exactly who you are but challenged to become what The Lord has designed for you to be. We don’t look for skill, style, or status, but good people who love to have a good time and serve their good God in all they do. Our mascot is the panther. Like the panther, we are unique and exist in a diverse environment in which we thrive. Years from now, the members will continue to grow and succeed because of the foundation that the members of today establish. The Omega Chi panthers are here to stay.
Phi Kappa Alpha
Established in 1938, Phi Kappa Alpha was created for men and women whose purpose was to exemplify and serve God in everything they do, to hold to the traditions of the past, and to strive to be a club of excellence on this campus. Phi Kappa Alpha will always compete to strive for the best in everything we do whether its Homecoming, Makin’ Music, or intramural athletics. Our motto is “Truth, Beauty, and Wisdom” which demonstrates the characteristics that transform the members of Phi Kappa Alpha into legends.
Sigma Rho is the oldest club on Freed-Hardeman’s campus and is founded on strong principles of family and tradition. We are characterized by our Greek letters, the Sigma standing for strength and the Rho for wisdom. We wear our black and gold colors with pride, the same way our Sigma Rho brothers and sisters wore them 101 years ago and the same way they will be worn 101 years from now. We bees have many mottos that are frequently used, but there is one that stands out among the rest. Our motto comes from a poem written by a club member many years ago. “It is the love I have for the things WE’VE done, that is why I am a Sigma Rho.” We don’t need a reminder that only the strong survive or anything like that because we don’t survive…we thrive. We thrive through the great memories we’ve made with one another. We thrive as we grow together in our spiritual walks with God. We thrive because we care about each other. We thrive because we are Sigma Rho.
Xi Chi Delta
Xi Chi Delta was established in 2002 by a group of friends who wanted to make a difference on Freed-Hardeman’s campus. It remains as FHU’s only social club started by students for students. Our colors are navy and silver and our mascot is a Knight. The slogan of Xi Chi Delta is K.N.I.G.H.T.S., “Keeping Nothing Inside Glorifying Him Through Service.” Our foundation remains fixated on God, the single Being Who unites all of our hearts together in perfect unity. We live for Him and He lives through us. Xi Chi Delta is not defined by anything. We do not fall under any category. We love God and we love each other.
