TKE Announces Return to Arkansas State
INDIANAPOLIS – Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity is excited to announce its return to Arkansas State University in the fall of 2016.
The Beta-Psi chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon has held a strong tradition with the Red Wolves of Arkansas State since its original installation on March 6, 1949. Since the chapter’s founding at Arkansas State, the men of TKE have been very active in the campus community holding multiple leadership positions.
TKE Chief Executive Officer Donald E. Aldrich said of the return, “Tau Kappa Epsilon is honored to have been selected to expand to the Arkansas State University campus. We will work to form a group of men committed to uphold the Fraternity’s principles of love, charity, and esteem. Our team looks forward to adding to the tradition of the Beta-Psi chapter and the nearly 1,400 alumni who have taken the bond of TKE since 1949.”
The Beta-Psi chapter commonly known for being the home chapter of Elvis Presley, Mike Huckabee and several other prominent alumni. At TKE’s 58th Biennial Conclave in New Orleans this past summer, the Beta-Psi Alumni Association was presented the Alumni Association of the Year award.
“TKE will strive to build a group of leaders who will fulfill the mission of Arkansas State to educate leaders, enhance intellectual growth, and enrich lives. We thank Arkansas State University for being our partners and we look forward to being an asset to Greek Life in Jonesboro,” said Aldrich.
