Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE)
Founded in 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon is the world’s largest social fraternity with over 265,000 initiated members since its founding and more than 290 active chapters and colonies located throughout the United States and Canada. Tau Kappa Epsilon is in the business of building better men who reflect highly on their family, school, community, and the Fraternity. TKE isn't just something you experience in your 4 years in college; it's a brotherhood with fellow men that share common values and bonds and an experience that lasts a lifetime.
“I am proud to be a TKE. For me, TKE has not only been an enjoyable association, but a meaningful aspect of my life.” — Ronald Reagan.
The Beta–Epsilon Chapter at Trine University was founded in 1947. Since that time more than 740 men have been affiliated with this local chapter.
