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.
In March of 2009, Kane Moix contacted the national office about the possibility of starting a BYX chapter on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas. Kane, Blake Jacobs, Jeremy Flynn, Kyle Boyd, Jeremy Wilson, and TJ Beringer began recruiting other men to join them in their endeavor through out the spring 2009 semester. They began to meet for fellowship, to spend time in the word, and pray for the possibility of starting BYX. During the spring of 2009 these men worked to complete our three-phase prospective chapter process. In September, Jason Hoyt and Nick England traveled to Conway to visit these men during Phase 3 and commence their training to be officers. After spending two days with these men, they felt the Lord moving us to start the next BYX chapter at the University of Central Arkansas. As of November the 9th, 2009 we are proud to announce that the University of Central Arkansas has become the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Beta Upsilon Chi, making them the 27th chapter in the BYX family.
