Open House-Cocktail Reception 

Again this year the main event will be an open house – cocktail reception at the chapter house on Friday 5:00pm – 8:00 pm.  This will be an informal get to together designed to encourage the interaction of alumni with the active chapter members. Dress is casual and the chapter will be having one of the sorority over as guests. We expect a big post COVID-19 turnout, so register today by clicking the Buy Now button below so we can ensure we have enough appetizers and drinks. The cost of the function is $30 per person. You can also pay at the door.  

Football Tickets

HERE’S MOST IMPORTANT PART!  To purchase your football tickets call the athletic department ticket office at 406-994-2287 beginning on August 8 and ask for tickets in the Sigma Chi Alumni section 109 (sideline seats) or section 124 (end zone seats). The sideline seats are more expensive. You can pick up the tickets at will call on the day of the game.   DO NOT purchase your tickets online at ticketswest.com because you will not be in the Sigma Chi Alumni section if you do.


Pre-game Beta Rho Tailgates will be held in various locations. See the hosts and maps below.

We are recommending that you attend the Tailgates as indicated by the year of your graduation as you will meet most of the brothers from your time at Beta Rho. Of course, you are free to attend any of the Tailgates.

Please be sure to introduce yourself to the Beta Rho host. You should also be aware that these hosts hold Tailgates  for most Bobcat games so other non-Beta Rho guests will likely also be present.
