Overview

Self-reported by organization

Beta Upsilon Chi (BYX) is a men's Christian fraternity serving 31 campuses in 16 states. We are unlike any other organization found on a college campus in that we are not a campus ministry and yet we are not like traditional fraternities. We are a blend of the roots of traditional fraternities founded on Christian principles and take aspects of Christian ministries and bring it into a fraternal setting. Our chapters members are believers in Christ who gather together on a college campus seeking to encourage one another in brotherhood and unity in Christ. We are involved in Greek life and campus life through various events both socially and in service. Beta Upsilon Chi is a safe place for a young Christian man to experience college life to the fullest without forsaking his faith in Christ. Brothers experience tremendous growth relationally with their brothers, both socially and spiritually.
