Theta delta beta

In 1990, a spirited group of Filipino college students attending the University of California, Irvine conceived a new organization. Ostensibly labeled as "The Dark Boyz" because of their dark skin and Ilocano heritage, they sought a community where brothers and sisters could thrive in a kinship guided by the principles of intellectual awareness, social responsibility, personal integrity, and brotherly love. In May of that same year, these seventeen founding fathers united to create "The Dark Boyz", reclaiming the label as their own. In the spirit of true brotherhood, and in jest, the brothers adopted the first letters of "The Dark Boyz", TDB, and translated them into the letters Theta, Delta, and Beta, to mimic the traditional Greek fraternal system. What began as a lighthearted attempt to organize a closely-knit group of friends quickly grew in popularity and population into an organization spanning four chapters. After its founding in 1990 on the UC Irvine campus, Theta Delta Beta expanded to Cal State Fullerton in 1991. Theta Delta Beta cultivates and celebrates the intellectual, imaginative and humanitarian promise of each its brothers and lil' sisters in a family that encourages education, practices mutual respect, embraces diversity, and inspires a passion for unconditional love.
