“Not for wealth, rank, or honor, but for personal worth and character.” Guided by this simple principle, 5 men founded Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity on January 10, 1899 at Illinois Wesleyan University with the avowed purpose “to aid college men in their mental, moral, and social development," Our mission is no different than it was in 1899 and the challenge is no less intimidating, but it is one we have not strayed from. Building better men is what TKE has always been about.
It is that mission and our devotion to life long friendships through Brotherhood, that has allowed TKE to become the largest fraternity in North America.
You too can be apart of that heritage and our future. By participating in various social events such as Red Carnation Ball, intramural sports, philanthropies like Special Olympics, campus events, leadership opportunities and chapter events you’ll develop friendships that you will cherish and carry with you for a lifetime.
Leaving home and going away for college can be an intimidating experience, but going Greek is a great way to help alleviate concerns. Many of us have already faced the problems that one has to deal with during the first semester of college, and we can offer guidance in academics, university involvement, and any other problems you may be facing.
