"Not for wealth, rank or honor, but for personal worth and character"

TKE is one of the few fraternities that never had a discrimination clause in its membership requirements to prevent membership of men because of their race, color, or creed.


Tau Kappa Epsilon Purchases New Headquarters



The Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity was established at the University of Miami in 1949. It was re-established in 1966 by a local fraternity by the name of ΣΙ and was known as the ΓΔ chapter. Sadly, as of 2000, the chapter is no longer active at Miami.

Our chapter was always drawn from a broad cross-section of the nation and always had an active Little Sister group. The Little Sisters were properly called the Order of Diana and had their own initiation ceremony into our family.

We came from all over the country which has meant that we have returned to all over the country and have lost touch through the years. In this era of the Internet, some of us have come together to create this site in the hope of reaching old friends.
