The Defenders of Love, Charity, and Esteem
Founded on January 10, 1899 by five men at the Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois, Tau Kappa Epsilon is the largest international fraternity in the world, with over 250,000 men initiated at over 300 chapters in the United States and Canada. TKE's Zeta Mu chapter, founded in 1959 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, maintains a particularly high standard of excellence. In addition to numerous other national awards, we have received the Top TKE award as one of the best chapters in the world for seven years in a row.
Tau Kappa Epsilon's remarkably strong brotherhood is built on a diverse group of men, considered not for wealth, rank, or honor; but for personal worth and character. The brothers at Tau Kappa Epsilon's Zeta Mu chapter strive to excel in leadership, scholarship, athletics and services to our community. All TKE brothers strive to exemplify the fraternity's cardinal principles of love, charity and esteem in our daily lives. These men of sterling character carry on to become leaders in their business and community.
