The goals of pledgeship are for pledges to foster a deep sense of commitment to the fraternity, gain a proper understanding of the history and purpose of the fraternity and grow into the image of Christ. Through weekly pledge meetings, the pledges learn the intricacies of Beta Upsilon Chi and get to know each other on a personal level. All the while, the members of the fraternity serve and invest in the pledges as they work through the pledgeship process.
