Announcements and Upcoming Events

A look at what we did this semester...
Service Pillar Event
Saturday November 20th with the UMD Arboretum
Our members planted flowers behind the Eppley Recreation Center and Jull Hall on North Campus.
Pie Beta Psi
Our members got pied with whipped cream, mayo, or a combination of both by the UMD community as an awesome (but gross) fundraiser!
Diversity Pillar Event
Volunteering with Casey's Trees
On September 22nd, a group of our fabulous members volunteered with Casey's Trees at a local elementary school. They helped at the Farm at Kelly Miller tree planting event and thanks to all of their hard work as well as the work of other volunteers, the community will enjoy the 93 new trees!!
First Look Fair Fall 2018
On Thursday September 20th, BPO participated in this huge campus event on McKeldin mall where we set up a table next to the over 800 other student orgs on UMD's campus to recruit new members!
Meet the Geeks Fall 2018
On September 6, 2018 our members set up a table on Hornbake plaza alongside under Professional fraternities on campus to give students an opportunity to learn about out fraternity and get information about Spring Rush!
A look into the past...
Proactivity Pillar Event!
Our first public event is in under two weeks - woohoo!
On Tuesday, September 26th, from 5-6PM, we will be having a Proactivity Pillar event: "Nutrition: It's Possible" (yes, it is a Mission: Impossible pun). There will be free, delicious, healthy food and a presentation/demonstration from student nutritionists about constructive nutrition habits! More info about the event can be found at the Facebook event here
Since this conflicts with Tuesday tutoring, the tutoring session is cancelled -- go check out the event instead!
Be sure to follow us on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) to get day-to-day updates on everything Beta Psi Omega!
