Tau Kappa Epsilon re-joined the UK FSL community in the Spring of 2019 as the Gamma Sigma Colony at the University of Kentucky.

National History
Tau Kappa Epsilon is a men’s social fraternity with hundreds of prominent alumni and was established January 10, 1899, at Illinois Wesleyan University. But what does that really mean? Let us explain. With more than 250 active chapters and colonies in the United States and Canada, Tau Kappa Epsilon’s membership is as diverse and unique as the collegiate and universities in which we reside. There isn’t a proper blanket statement that is able to capture the essence of what a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon, or rather a “Teke” is—that’s up to you to decide.

Since its founding on January 10, 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon has been a driving force in the fraternal world. And as we look back on our history, we are reminded of the path that was forged by great ideals held by revolutionary men. More than 275,000 men of sterling character and staunch uprightness have joined a brotherhood that believes in the honest convictions of Love, Charity and Esteem. Men like Ronald Reagan, Steve Forbes, Danny Thomas, Conrad Hilton and Charles R. Walgreen actively sought to better themselves, and in return, better the Fraternity.

TKE's mission is to aid men in their mental, moral, and social development for life.

Tau Kappa Epsilon creates lifelong relationships that enhance educational, interpersonal, community and professional success.

TKE contributes to the advancement of society through the personal growth of our members, and service to others.
