Beta-Lambda Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon

RUSHTau Kappa Epsilon

Tau Kappa Epsilon is a men’s social fraternity with hundreds of prominent alumni and was established January 10, 1899, at Illinois Wesleyan University. But what does that really mean? Let us explain. With more than 250 active chapters and colonies in the United States and Canada, Tau Kappa Epsilon’s membership is as diverse and unique as the collegiate and universities in which we reside. There isn’t a proper blanket statement that is able to capture the essence of what a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon, or rather a “Teke” is—that’s up to you to decide.

BUILDINGBetter Men for a Better World

Since its founding on January 10, 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon has been a driving force in the fraternal world. And as we look back on our history, we are reminded of the path that was forged by great ideals held by revolutionary men. More than 275,000 men of sterling character and staunch uprightness have joined a brotherhood that believes in the honest convictions of Love, Charity and Esteem. Men like Ronald Reagan, Steve Forbes, Danny Thomas, Conrad Hilton and Charles R. Walgreen actively sought to better themselves, and in return, better the Fraternity.

The Beta-Lambda Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon at Auburn University was installed as a chapter on July 12, 1947.

Since 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon has never had an exclusionary clause for membership. TKE does not judge men on their wealth, rank or honor, but instead on their personal worth and character.

Our mission is to "to aid men in their mental, moral, and social development for life." In essence, we build Better Men for a Better World.
