THE TEKE - Summer 2016 Release / Fall Content Due

THE TEKE - Summer 2016 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, we are excited to release the summer 2016 edition of THE TEKE

This issue is a 40-page testament to the spirit of the Fraternity. Particular highlights include a recap of the Top 25 Recruitment Rankings and a sitdown with Frater E.J. "Skullcrusher" Snyder of Discovery Channel's hit TV show "Naked and Afraid." Featured in this issue is Frater Erik Huberman, Forbes 30 Under 30 receipient and founder/CEO of Hawke Media.
