Greek Life at Loyola

About Loyola Greek Life

A common misconception about Greek life, specifically fraternities, is that they are just a social club where people spend their free time partying. This is absolutely false. Tau Kappa Epsilon is a fraternity driven in aiding our brothers to be the best possible version of themselves and through doing so, equip our members to use their learned skills to make the Loyola community, Chicago, and the world a better, more caring place. Academics, service, philanthropy, and leadership are all trademarks of our organization that each one of our members strives to achieve.

Why Join TKE?

You should join our organization if you are a male student who cares about any one of these qualities: service, philanthropy, academics, brotherhood, networking, and leadership.

With over 2,000 hours of community service last year and $7,500 of funds raised that went directly towards philanthropic causes the Epsilon Kappa chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon prides itself on giving back to our community. With a chapter grade point average above the Loyola all-male collegiate average, academics are a cornerstone of TKE. By being founded at Loyola in 1956, our alumni populate all sectors of the Chicagoland area and world.
