INDIANAPOLIS – Last year, over the course of eight weeks, 16 chapters were paired against one another in an effort to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Tau Kappa Epsilon's St. Jude Challenge. The chapters who competed did an absolutely incredible job on their way to raising over $14,000 in the short eight week period. This year, we plan to soar past those numbers.

To wrap up the 2013-2014 St. Jude Challenge, Beta Chapter (Millikin University) and Xi-Upsilon (Rochester Institute of Technology) were called out to go head-to-head in the final weeks. Now, for the start of the 2014-2015 St. Jude Challenge, it’s their turn to pass the challenge.

Tau-Omega (Carleton University) and Upsilon-Iota (IUPUI), you’re on the clock.

INDIANAPOLIS – In an effort to tailor Tau Kappa Epsilon's social media campaign to better suit the Fraters and followers of TKE, we are asking you to take our five-minute Social Media Survey. This survey will guide the direction for the 2014-2015 academic year in regard to the number and type of posts, photos, facts and trivia shared by the Offices of the Grand Chapter.

With hundreds of organizations vying for your attention, often times the message is lost in translation. As a result, Tau Kappa Epsilon wants to customize its social media campaign to your needs.

What topics do you want to hear? How often do you want us to post? What more can we be doing? 

Take our five-minute survey and share your thoughts.
