In the Spring of 2010, Tylar Claypool, Caleb Glennie, Kyle Rice, and Kevin East came together with the vision of establishing a Beta Upsilon Chi chapter at the University of Central Oklahoma. These men believed a BYX chapter would provide an outlet for Christian men to engage in the social aspect of College as well as deep spiritual growth and unity. These four men began to search for college men who shared a common vision of a social Christian fraternity. As the group began to grow they started to meet once a week to share in fellowship, brotherhood, and devotion. In the Fall of 2010 the UCO prospective chapter was invited to attend National Officer Training held in Cedar Hill, Texas. It was here that the officers learned about officer roles in depth and had the opportunity to meet the officers of other chapters. In the Spring of 2011 the UCO prospective chapter had grown it’s numbers to close to 20 men. In April of 2011, National Advisor Nick England and Executive Director Jason Hoyt visited the University of Central Oklahoma to visit the members of the prospective Chapter. On August 29th of 2011 the UCO prospective chapter was formally initiated into Beta Upsilon Chi as the Alpha Epsilon Chapter becoming the 29th Chapter in the Fraternity’s history.
