In the winter of 1993, four men of differing denominational backgrounds created the Alpha Chapter at Texas Tech University in response to the demand for a Christian brotherhood on campus. Tyler Beard, David Boncler, Ken Rowland, and Matt Welborn brought in their first pledge class of 13 that spring.


The movement from a local fraternity to a national fraternity began in the fall of 1995 when 12 men established a Beta Chapter of Kappa Upsilon Chi at Wayland Baptist University. From there, the Fraternity has steadily grown as the concept has been publicized. The fraternity now stretches across five states with eight chapters. More than 1,000 men have been initiated into the fraternity with the number rising each year as new chapters are established and the existing chapters grow.

The Greek letters of Kappa Upsilon Chi represent the organization's primary name, "Keeping Under Christ" - which in itself is a philosophy on which this organization was founded and on which it thrives today.
