Parents

We understand that you are extremely invested in the success of your son's college career, which is why our alumni employ two grown-ups to monitor the fraternity house on a daily basis.  At a time when most fraternities have strayed away from adult supervision, Beta Sigma Psi is in the unique position of having a House Mother, Barbara Gurganus, who we affectionately call "Mom B.", and arguably the longest standing House Father at Iowa State: John "Cookie" Anderson, our chef since 2001.  With their oversight and guidance, our chapter has been able to achieve greatness in not only grades, awards, and recognition, but by having a fully-rounded college experience at Beta Sigma Psi.  Both Mom B. and Cookie embodied the experience and life-lessons that they are able to share with us as they, like our alumni, serve as our mentors and friends by challenging us to be better men and relate to us the importance of our relationship with one another, our community, and Christ.

In addition to these unique relationships, we also share a strong tie with our Parent's Club, which is made up of members' parents.  The group aides with improvement projects around the chapter house, which this past summer included installing Trex decking at the chapter house hand-in-hand with members of the chapter and alumni organizations.  The Parent's Club also funds purchases, and organizes events such as Family weekends in the Fall and Father-Son weekends in the Spring.  For decades now, we are very thankful to have to enduring support of the Parent's Club, who have continued to make Beta Sigma Psi a better place for their students to live.
