THE TEKE - Summer 2015 Release / Fall Content Due
INDIANAPOLIS – On October 19, 1907, Frater Wallace G. McCauley recited an address that forever changed the trajectory of the Fraternity. This speech - accurately titled "Opportunity Out of Defeat" - set the principles of Tau Kappa Epsilon. "Let us issue a magazine, quarterly at first, name it THE TEKE, make it attractive and artistic in form," said McCauley in the address. "Let it be piquant and virile in tone, representative of our Fraternity, and a reflector of student life generally."
Following Frater McCauley's proclamation, THE TEKE was born January 1908. Since then, through two World Wars, the Great Depression and other countless obstacles, the Fraternity's magazine has thrived.
Today, with only months left until Conclave 2015 in New Orleans, we are excited to release the summer issue of THE TEKE.
This issue is a 40-page testament to the spirit of the Fraternity. Particular highlights include a look at how Tau Kappa Epsilon is the Fraternity for Life, a review of top performing chapters and colonies, and a sit down with WTHR-13 sportscaster and voice of the Indianapolis 500, Frater Dave Calabro. Featured in this issue is a look back at Frater Bob Barr's journey from the Beta-Sigma chapter at the University of Southern California to Grand Prytanis.
