The Loyola Chicago Chapter

TKE - Epsilon Kappa


Tau Kappa Epsilon: Epsilon Kappa chapter is a social Fraternity at Loyola University Chicago. For short, we often use the acronym of our letters: TKE. TKE is the recent recipient of the 2016 IFC Top Chapter of the Year at Loyola University Chicago and Top TKE Chapter 2015-2016. Our brothers, whom you can find around campus in their cherry and gray letters, are often referred to as Tekes. Feel free to come up and say hi!

Our organization exists to aid men in their mental, moral, and social development for life. Once a brother of Tau Kappa Epsilon, you are a Teke for life-not just the four years you are an undergrad at Loyola. By developing a life long membership, we are able to follow through on our goal of making “Better Men for a Better World”. In order to find these type of men, we strictly follow the ideal of not recruiting for wealth, rank, or honor, but instead, for personal worth and character. TKE hopes to promote this message throughout the Loyola community because we believe it aligns directly with Loyola's values of creating “Women and Men for Others” who follow the goal of setting the world on fire.

Get Involved with TKE

If you do one event with Tau Kappa Epsilon this year it should be joining us for our philanthropy events in the Fall and Spring. We strive to give back to our community in order to recognize our goals of becoming the best men possible. As a national organization, our philanthropy money goes toward St Jude Children Research Hospital. All of the money raised goes straight to the hospital in order to provide children with medical care for life threatening diseases at zero cost to their families. That being said, come out this November and help support our event “Crafts for Kids”. You will be able to fulfill your artistic side by making holiday and get-well cards for the children to open around the holiday season. It is a small, free gesture that is able to put a smile on many kids' faces that unfortunately have to spend the holiday season in a hospital bed. In the Spring, our philanthropy week culminates on a night of comedy from the Second City comedy group when we present “Jokes for St. Jude”. We hope some of you join us because our events are open to the entire Loyola community!

The Epsilon-Kappa Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon at Loyola University Chicago was installed as a chapter on May 12, 1956.

Since 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon has never had an exclusionary clause for membership. TKE does not judge men on their wealth, rank or honor, but instead on their personal worth and character.

Our mission is to "to aid men in their mental, moral, and social development for life." In essence, we build Better Men for a Better World.
