Theta Chi at the University of Florida is the latest fraternity to make a move in the chapter house arms race. Their new pad — all $4,300,000 of it — was honored on Friday with a grand opening ceremony. The celebration seems to have gone well, and with a house like this finally opening its doors, why wouldn’t it?

Nearly 350 alumni attended the event, but with their dates and families, the crowd swelled to about 700 people, said Theta Chi Administrative Vice President Kyle Rodriguez.

“Two years ago, some of our alumni — the main one being George Kramer — started a campaign to build a brand-new, state-of-the-art fraternity house,” said the 20-year-old UF sustainability and the built environment junior. “It’s a pretty awesome house.”

The house cost $4.3 million to build, and it was financed through about $2 million of chapter fundraising, alumni donations and a loan, Rodriguez said.

Specifics of the house were not included, but these photos show that this place is nice, and this place is big. You gotta respect the red brick facade and plantation style architecture, too. So choice. So classic.

Rush should go well this semester.

Two bronze gator statues were also added to the front of the house. They were made by the same artist that made the gator statue at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Nice touch.

    You people saying OX sucks do realize every fraternity has good and bad chapters and that it’s not the same as your specific school, right? (Disregard for Pike and TKE)

    Yeah, they built the damn thing out of wood (and not cinderblocks) too. Good thing “the swamp” isn’t humid and filled with termites. Also, i’d like to watch how fast that fucker goes up in flames if it ever catches.
