​How to Join

SAI is an organization which promotes interaction among those who share a commitment to music. To become a member of the Theta Chi chapter, you must abide by the following:

  • Have an established GPA with USC that is at least a 2.5
  • Have taken or enrolled in a music class at USC (Music Appreciation does count)
  • Have a strong love for music and dedication to the fraternity
  • Attend three of four recruitment events for the fall or four of five recruitment events for the spring. For both semesters, the formal dinner, Pipes of Pancakes is a mandatory event. 
  • We hold our recruitment that lasts one to two weeks each semester. If you are extended a bid to our Fraternity, you are given one week to accept before our Pledging Ceremony. At that point, you become a Member-In-Training and you start your process where you learn about our Fraternity and our chapter in weekly meetings with your fellow MITs. Your process will last approximately eight weeks and will complete the following with your class:
    • Fundraising event
    • Service event
    • Social event
    • Musicale event where all MIT's are required to perform
    • Pass the National Exam

Once you complete your process, you will have Initiation and will be welcomed into our chapter with open arms and attend at least one meeting with the chapter before that semester is over. Requirements to maintain membership are discussed with current members only.
