Beta Omega Chi (BOX) is New Zealand’s first fraternity. Unlike American-style fraternities, Beta Omega Chi has taken a Kiwi-style approach but keeping the name Greek. At BOX we organise large events for Orientation, Re-Orientation and our own Blow Out event to symbolise the end of the University year. We also run hotel parties, paintballing days and other such activities for our fraternity members. At BOX we also take part in helping the community and sponsoring 4•$500 scholarships that anyone enrolled at Victoria University can apply for. For further information on Beta Omega Chi, please check out our website:
