On behalf of the men of Theta Xiʼs University of Nebraska Chapter: Welcome! It is our hope that this website provides you with a greater understanding of our chapterʼs values and rich tradition of excellence.
Situated in the heart of campus, Theta Xi is located at 1535 R Street. Here, you will find one of the oldest and most historic Theta Xi chapters, where we take pride in carrying on the legacy of the brothers before us. We strive to be the best scholastically, philanthropically and fraternally. As a brother of Theta Xi Fraternity, you are surrounded by a community of caring, driven young men who endeavor to hold you accountable and challenge you to become a better man. Our brothers constantly show their dedication to one another and are willing to provide a helping hand at anytime.
Although we only spend a few years at the University of Nebraska, Theta Xi creates memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Motivated by a deeply-held value system, our brothers are committed to intellectual curiosity, leadership and service, for life.

Creator of Garfield – Ball State 67′
Jim Davis was a member of the Theta Xi Kappa Kappa chapter at Ball State University. Davis held multiple leadership positions throughout his time in Theta Xi and looks back to his experiences as a great benefit to him when he graduated. He is most famously known for his creation of Garfield and his work as a cartoonist, winning numerous awards for his lifetime of dedication to the art. He has now returned to Ball State as a professor to help new and upcoming students interested in pursuing similar careers and passions.
JAMES S. VOSS
NASA Astronaut – Auburn ’74
James Shelton Voss as an undergraduate was a member of Beta Zeta Chapter of the Theta Xi Fraternity, where he served as Chapter President for the school year 1970-71. He graduated in 1974 with a Master of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering Sciences. He is now a retired United States Army Colonel and NASA astronaut. During his time with NASA, Voss flew in space five times on board the Space Shuttle and International Space Station. He also served as deputy of Flight Operations for the Space Station Program Mission Integration and Operations Office. While participating in ISS Expedition 2, he and Susan Helms conducted an 8-hour and 56 minute spacewalk, the longest to date.
Lincoln’s Post and Nickel Founder – UNL ’62
Gale Sup is one of our local Alpha Epsilon alumni here at the University of Nebraska graduating in 1962 for a Business degree. 51 years ago he started Lincoln’s own Post and Nickel with his wife Susie after learning the trade working as a buyer in the Macy’s market. The Post and Nickel was established as one of the first major clothing stores before any major strip malls were built in Lincoln... With many years and trophies in hunting it has become a major part of his life. He enjoys being able to share his travels and passion with the Theta Xi chapter, his grandchildren, and family.
