New Haven, CT (WFSB/CNN) - An all-Christian fraternity will have to change its membership rules if it wants to be on Yale's campus.
The school says since it leaves out non-Christians, violating Yale's anti-discrimination policy.
Beta Upsilon Chi, known as BYX, filed papers to start a chapter on campus.
According to the national office of BYX, it only allows Christians to join.
Yale has a Jewish fraternity, but that fraternity allows anyone to apply.
"If they want to make their own safe space, they could have a Bible study group,' said Kendra Dawsey.
"At the same time, I can imagine if you weren't Christian, you probably aren't interested in it, so I don't even know if they need to set up such a strict rule," said Leslie Park.
Yale has a non-discrimination policy for its recognized fraternities.
The dean of fraternities was not available to comment about whether BYX will be recognized on Yale's campus.
The students starting the Christian fraternity said in an e-mail they have no comment.
"Because women are part of a protected class of formerly oppressed in this country, it's okay, I don't necessary know that Christians fall into that category," said Sheela Remesh.
