Official Purpose

The official purpose of the Gamma Beta organization is to better each member as an individual and as a whole and all those in contact with Gamma Beta through a brotherhood promoting and enforcing morality, discipline, responsibility, an unprecedented sense of unity and high academic standards.

National History

The Gamma Beta Fraternity was created in the Spring of 2000 at the University of Texas at Austin. The original nine founders intended to incorporate the culture of the Asian community and the values and morals of a family to create an unparalleled brotherhood.

However, due to complications with the University of Texas, Gamma Beta began as a student organization. After many long nights of planning, the initial ideas of brotherhood and unity changed from a dream to reality.

With the dedication and commitment of these nine founders, the Gamma Beta Fraternity was officially established in the Summer of 2000. Gamma Beta had their first pledge class in the Fall of 2000, and with the Alpha class began a tradition of brotherhood and unity that has been and will be passed on to all future brothers.

Chapter History

In the Fall of 2008, a group of young men from Texas A&M University contacted the founding chapter of Gamma Beta Fraternity, Inc. at the University of Texas in regards to expanding the fraternity to their university. This group of men consisted of three juniors, one sophomore, and two freshmen.

Filled with determination and ambition, the six men came to a unanimous decision to begin the New Member Education Process and establish the presence of Gamma Beta on the campus of Texas A&M University. Under the direction of Expansion Director, Joshua Kim, the six men began their process on October 17th, 2008.

After overcoming trials and tribulations, the six young men officially crossed into the brotherhood on the night of December 5th, 2008. On that night, Gamma Colony of Gamma Beta Fraternity, Inc. was established. After crossing, the six founding Charters immediately began the long and arduous task of carrying Gamma Beta's ideals to Texas A&M.

Philanthropy

We at the Gamma Beta Fraternity, Inc. at Texas A&M University, in cooperation with our brothers all over Texas and Oklahoma, strive to raise money and awareness about the Asian Liver Center across the Southwest.

The Asian Liver Center at Stanford University is the first non-profit organization in the United States that addresses the high incidence of hepatitis B and liver cancer in Asians and Asian Americans. Founded in 1996, the center uses a four-pronged approach towards fighting hepatitis B: collaboration, advocacy, research, education and outreach (CARE). This organization has received numerous awards and recognition which include the White House award, in recognition of leadership in prevention and treatment of viral hepatitis, and the Immunization Leadership Award.
