Tau Kappa Epsilon is among the largest Social Greek fraternities in the world, striving to build better men for a better world, throughout the remainder of one's lifetime. We provide our members opportunities to develop leadership, character, teamwork, scholarship, service, and brotherhood persisting beyond one's collegiate years, cultivate success socially and academically, all the while encouraging the embodiment of Love, Charity, and Esteem.

Since our humble beginnings, we have accepted men into our brotherhood based not on wealth, rank, or honor, but on personal worth and character. Tau Kappa Epsilon has a strong presence spanning throughout North America, yielding bountiful opportunities for networking and building brotherhood regardless of their background, and in turn, will foster a collegiate environment, where such improvement is possible.
