Fraternity History

Beta Upsilon Chi was formed at The University of Texas at Austin in the spring of 1985 by a handful of Christian men who desired an alternative to the present fraternal lifestyle. A group of Christian men met and planned the “BYX Island Party” to formally announce the fraternity’s founding. It was the vision of the founding fathers to have a fraternity of committed Christian men, based on the unique brotherhood that a Christian atmosphere affords, for the purpose of fellowship and glorification of Jesus Christ. Through such events as parties, service projects, and evangelical outreaches, the charter members of Beta Upsilon Chi chose to unite in fellowship and glorify Jesus Christ on the University of Texas campus.

Chapter History

We are the proud Alpha Chapter of BYX. Ever since the beginning in 1985, our chapter has sought brotherhood, unity, and that God be glorified on the campus of UT Austin. In the Fall of 2021, our Chapter moved into our first House in Alpha history! We look forward to seeing how this opportunity can be used to further grow the brotherhood and our impact on our city.
