Share your story as part of TKE’s legacy and be published in TKE’s 125th anniversary book!

We are excited to announce our Oral History Project as part of TKE’s upcoming 125th anniversary. You will be hearing from PCI, our trusted partner, via postcard, email, and/or phone.  Please take a few minutes to respond and share your story.  

On the phone, they will check your contact information and make any necessary updates.  Then you will have the opportunity to do a brief interview on the phone that will be recorded.  All recorded interviews will be stored digitally in the TKE archives.  Stories that are considered for publication in our 125th anniversary book will be reviewed and edited and then confirmed with you as the source before anything goes to print.  You will also have the opportunity to share a headshot picture with your story if you’re being included in the book.   

You will be given the opportunity to make a donation to the TKE Foundation while on the call.  Please consider donating $125 in honor of our 125th.  These charitable donations to the Foundation are the only proceeds going to TKE.

You will also have the opportunity to purchase a book and/or TKE apparel if you wish.  Proceeds from product sales benefit PCI, the company doing the outreach for us.  This is classic telemarketing, not high pressure sales.  If you say no to the first offer, they will offer you a smaller, lower-priced option to consider.  If you don’t want to buy anything, just say no. 

Regardless of whether you want to make a purchase, I hope you will take a few minutes to share your story and then encourage more of your fellow alumni to do the same. 

Yours in the Bond,

Chris Niles
Director of Alumni & Advancement

Frequently Asked Questions


Is this a legitimate project or is it a scam?

Yes, it’s legit! We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce an Oral History Publication for TKE’s 125thanniversary.  PCI is a family owned business based in Dallas, TX that has published directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation for 100 years. They published our alumni directory project two years ago and also 10 years before that. The Oral History Project allows us to gather your stories and personal experiences and explain how TKE has helped impact your life.

Does TKE benefit from this at all?

1. Legacy – preserves your stories and celebrates the history of Tau Kappa Epsilon
2. Updated Information – allows us to more effectively communicate with and engage members
