In high school I gave up on the idea that there could be a sizable Christian brotherhood that is authentic. I didn’t think it was possible. I was shocked to come to BYX and see the way guys interact; it honestly defies explanation in today’s world. The brotherhood that we have here, the conversations that I’ve had with brothers, and the love we have for one another… I just don’t know how to describe it. I know I have that backing that will support me in whatever I do. I have a place I can return to at the end of the day where guys invest in me and I can turn around and watch out for them as well. Being a part of BYX is a blessing that I honestly can’t compare to anything else.

One of the major factors in my decision to spend my college career at Purdue was the Christian community offered at Beta Upsilon Chi. After a long day of classes, I don’t just come back to a comfortable living space, I come back to a home. My roommates and small group members aren’t just friends, they are a family that truly loves me for who I am - a child of God. With a focus on brotherhood and development of intentional Christian relationships, BYX also holds many socials and campus-wide events that show students it’s possible to have a fantastic time in college without celebrating alcohol and irresponsibility for meaningful experiences. Whether it’s late night chats with men who are role models to challenge you in your faith, or parties with hundreds of fellow students, BYX is the best place in Purdue’s campus to connect, grow, and make incredible memories.

First coming to BYX, I was amazed at how genuine and sincere everyone was not only to me, but also in their faith. Hearing everybody’s testimony right off the bat as a pledge was really encouraging to me. I have had great opportunities in accountability and to be part of God’s family. We watch out for each other as brothers. Small groups have shown me the true importance of being open and the value of the accountability I have around me. BYX in many ways has challenged me to step up and take action in my faith. I am growing deeper in my faith and turning further away from being a sidelines Christian. BYX, so far in my life, has been the most influential part of my growth as a Christian.

Through being a member of BYX, I have grown in ways I never foresaw as possible. The authenticity of the brotherhood is like no other. At the pivotal stage of life college men are in, it's so important to have a community of believers to support and challenge one another in the faith. I have found just that at Beta Upsilon Chi. Because of our unique bond, the common bond of Jesus Christ, we are more unified than what man alone could accomplish.
