About Tau Kappa Epsilon International Fraternity

Founded on January 10, 1899 at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois.

Our History

Tau Kappa Epsilon was founded on the cold night of January 10, 1899, after the discussion of a new society that regarded men not for wealth, rank or honor, but for personal worth and character.
