In the fall of 2014, a small group of Christian men gathered together to begin the founding of a Beta Upsilon Chi chapter at Louisiana Tech. As a unified organization,the brothers hosted their first tailgate to formally establish their presence on LaTech’s campus. It was the goal of the brothers to create an establishment apart from anything present at the university. They wanted to bring true brotherhood to a lost fraternal culture through the powerful bond of Jesus Christ. With events such as social functions, service projects, and campus outreach, the members of Beta Upsilon Chi continued to further the fraternity’s presence, and the kingdom of God.
Founding Fathers: Adam Lala, Blake Becnel, Brennan Edwards, Brian Elsner, Cam Broussard, Cody Carroll, Dillon Harper, Gabriel Hodges, Hunter Dial, Hunter Long, Jacob Priest, Joseph Meltz, Josh Owens, Logan Dallalio, Paul Butts, Ronnie Aycock, Seth Maggio, Spencer Morris, Tyler Musgrove, and Tyler Ross.


6. Give a brief account of the history of the founding of the original Beta Upsilon Chi Chapter:


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.


Founding Fathers: Craig Albert, David Daniels, John Douglas, John Edson, Jeff Garrett, David Givens, Steve Hoehner, Clayton Jewett, Scott Love, Mark McGee, Tim Miller, Roger Paupart, Don Reid, Kenneth Sapp, Garland Spiller, Clayton Walthers, Wendel Weaver, John Wilson.
