Iota Chi Upsilon fraternity and members were dedicated to instill, foster, promulgate and perpetuate a spirit of loyalty, appreciation and support within the student body of John Carroll University and all such other persons and activities which will affect the success of the various departments of John Carroll University.

Included in the purpose is the promotion of the internal brotherhood of Iota Chi Upsilon. The bonds of brotherhood united the fraternity as students and continued forever as alumni.

Service As Students

Iota Chi Upsilon fraternity and members were dedicated to instill, foster, promulgate and perpetuate a spirit of loyalty, appreciation and support within the student body of John Carroll University and all such other persons and activities which will affect the success of the various departments of John Carroll University.

The fraternity’s charter included giving campus tours to prospective students, hosting Homecoming activities, publicizing all student activities and representing the University in Cleveland St. Patrick’s Day parade and float competition. Our Booster heritage promoted leadership and school spirit in all aspects of campus life.

The Iota Chi Upsilon (IXY) Scholarship was established in 1984 to benefit undergraduate students in good academic standing at John Carroll University, and who have a family connection to Iota Chi Upsilon. Recipients of this scholarship must be the son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, great –grandchildren grandnephew, or grandniece of an Iota Chi Upsilon member.

John Carroll’s admission application asks each applicant if she/ he is an IXY legacy. The Brotherhood invites each member to encourage our extended family to attend JCU and to apply for the IXY scholarship, regardless of whether the applicant is an incoming freshman or already attending JCU.

The IXY’s continue to have a great impact on John Carroll University, both as alumni leaders and through this important scholarship.  Please join over 180 brothers who have contributed to this scholarship in our goal to double the scholarship endowment to support John Carroll and IXY legacies.  Join us in this IXY Forever campaign to serve future generations!

Since 1994, over 25 students have received the IXY Scholarship to John Carroll University. Here are notes from two recent students:

“I was not aware that my grandfather was in a fraternity at John Carroll until early in my junior year of high school. My father told me about the IXY Scholarship during the admission process. I didn’t get a chance to know my grandfather very well, but getting the IXY scholarship is, in my mind, a connection to him that I wouldn’t have had otherwise.”

   - David Haas ’17 (grandson of David Haas ’64)

“Receiving the IXY Scholarship is special to me because the fellow scholarship winners and I have the opportunity to carry on the Iota Chi Upsilon tradition. My uncle, George (Jerry) Mackey, was an IXY. In 1969, he was awarded the Beaudry Award. I believe that this award speaks volumes about IXY as a fraternity, as well as all of his brothers.

   - Mary McDonnell ’16 (niece of George Mackey ’69)
