The chapter house at 1832 Fraternity Park is over 50 years old. A major renovation in 2011 means we expect it to serve the chapter’s need for many years to come. However there is always a need for maintenance, improvements, and preparation for future construction.
Checks to support the housing corporation should be made payable to The University of Tennessee, and mailed to P.O. Box 2223, Knoxville, TN 37901.
Contributions to The University of Tennessee are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Be sure to consult with a tax advisor for full information.
