Tau Kappa Epsilon Initiates 48 at Texas A&M
Nearly 35 years ago, Tau Kappa Epsilon first joined the Texas A&M community in College Station. Today, we are excited to announce our return following the initiation of 48 men of sterling character and staunch uprightness into the Pi-Eta colony of Tau Kappa Epsilon.
Similar to how the Aggie Spirit exemplifies the commitment to fulfill the core values of organizations that have long characterized the renowned Texas A&M community, the strength of Tau Kappa Epsilon is found in the Teke spirit—“a spirit that does not shrink from sacrifice, that knows no defeat; a spirit indomitable.”
Tekes at A&M have historically been actively engaged students of the university and members of the community. From involvement in athletics and academics, service and philanthropy, Tau Kappa Epsilon aspires to bridge the group’s past excellence with today’s increased standards.
TKE Senior Operations Specialist Cory Martin oversaw the initiation, which was led by the Epsilon-Omicron chapter at the University of Houston. A number of key alumni from the College Station area and beyond were in attendance for the event, including Frater Casey Fleming (Pi-Eta, Scroll #3) who said, "Being an A&M man means something. Being an A&M Teke means even more."
With an exceptional group of young men ready to carry the torch of the Fraternity in College Station, we strongly believe that the successful history of Tau Kappa Epsilon at Texas A&M University is ready to grow once again. As stated by Frater Dr. William V. Muse, past dean of A&M’s College of Business, in 1981, “The Tekes at Texas A&M, in my opinion, will be a credit to the international fraternity.” We seek to pursue to that credit again.
