Who is Gamma Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon?
Gamma chapter is the third and most storied chapter of over 279 chapters of Tau Kappa Epsilon, internationally. We, Tekes of Gamma Chapter, pride ourselves on our scholarship in academics, our leadership on campus, but most importantly, three basic ideals that we were founded onlove, charity, and esteem.
When Tau Kappa Epsilon was founded, the goal was to establish a fraternity in which the primary requisites for membership are the personal worth and character of the individual rather than the wealth he possessed, the honors or titles he could display, or the rank he maintained on the social ladder.
These goals are what we live our lives by and the experiences and lessons from being a Teke are lessons that are carried on into life, after the years of an undergraduate are over. This is why we call ourselves a Fraternity for Life.
