MIT Pi Lambda Phi
Massachusetts Theta

For All Men, Of All Creeds

The Massachusetts Theta chapter of Pi Lambda Phi was founded in 1897 and continues to hold a strong presence at the Institute today. As the first non-sectarian fraternity, Pi Lambda Phi welcomes all men of all creeds. Brothers pursue academics, extracurricular activities, and social life with vigor, and we take pride in the strength of our brotherhood.

Instead of recruiting people who fit a particular archetype, we're looking for exciting guys who bring something new to our house dynamic. We're a group of brothers who, different though we may be, are striving together to be more and developing bonds that last a lifetime.

450 Beacon Street, Boston

We are located a short walk away from the main MIT campus in Boston's historic Back Bay neighborhood. The Boston East Saferide also stops less than a block away on Massachusetts Avenue and Beacon Street.

Why Rush Pi Lam?

We're doing a Spring Rush! Contact Tom Benavides at or 832-732-4447 if you're interested in joining.

Pi Lam's founders established an organization for "all men of all creeds." More than a century later, this basic tenet endures as the bedrock of our fraternity.

Our brothers hail from 14 different states and 4 foreign countries and are majoring in 9 different majors. Even with such diversity, we discover that what we share are the truly important values:

  • Strength of character
  • Commitment to self improvement
  • Binding loyalty to each other

At Pi Lam, we form friendships that last "not four years, but a lifetime." Come find out what we have to offer.

If you have any questions about our fraternity please contact our Rush Chairman, Thomas Benavides at

Our House

The Pi Lam house is located along the Charles River at 450 Beacon Street in Boston. Our four story brownstone offers a magnificent view of the river to the north, and downtown Boston to the south. Our rooftop offers an amazing view of the MIT campus.

Inside the house, you'll find many amenities, including a full-sized pool table, a grand piano, HDTVs, and numerous games including an arcade machine. In addition, our library contains many of the required textbooks for classes, as well as a variety of books for casual reading.


The most important part of any fraternity is its network of brothers and alumni. With our diverse group of brothers you'll be able to find someone to have a good time with, regardless of whether you're interested in partying, gaming or anything else. But, life as an MIT student is not just fun and games: for academic, professional and personal concerns, you'll always be able to find someone in the brotherhood to turn to.
