History

In 1957, ten men founded Fairway Cooperative as part of Purdue University’s cooperative housing system. Following the first pledge class of 1958, continued growth resulted in several moves between houses across campus. While housing has always been an integral part of the organization, the lasting bonds of Christian brotherhood formed within the walls are what define each man’s experience.

In February of 2015, Fairway’s Alumni Board began to look for ways to expand the house’s organizational model to other college campuses. In the search for existing fraternities with similar missions, BYX was discovered. Through more than two years of discussion, campus visits and prayer, it was determined that both Fairway and BYX would become stronger by merging together. In the Spring of 2017, Fairway was initiated as a BYX chapter with over 50 founding fathers.
