Join Tau Kappa Epsilon

A message from Prytanis, Benjamin Johnson '18

Lambda Chapter is thriving!

During the last school year, we recruited the largest Fall and Spring classes in forty years (27 new members in the Fall, 14 in the Spring). This fall we had another outstanding rush with 18 new members bringing the overall chapter size to 78 men.

As a result of our accomplishments last school year, we were recognized at Conclave this past August with the following awards:

  • Excellence Award for Involvement,
  • Excellence Award for Chapter Education
  • Excellence Awards for Community Service (fundraising for St. Jude’s)
  • The Most Improved Recruitment Cup.
  • Our Fraters won Greek Week!
  • We filled the house with 29 leases signed, for the Fall semester, and for the first time we have some Fraters in double-up some rooms.
  • We sent a record 24 men to our Regional Leadership Conference, more than any other chapter in the Midwest.
  • The brothers raised more than $16,000 through our chapter philanthropy, and through Humorology with Alpha Xi Delta.
  • Last Fall (2016) The former Lambda Chapter President became IFC President (Bennett Wallander), and we currently have IFC Chief Justice (Landry Ndahayo) and IFC Programming (Ed Wilkinson)-Tekes occupy the top three positions of IFC!


Our Board of Advisors was restructured to include an alumnus advisor assigned to each undergraduate executive board member.

The chapter President and Vice President attended TKE Leadership Academy in Colorado Springs last summer. It is indeed an honor to lead Lambda Chapter at this exciting time in our fraternity’s history.

And finally, we were excited to host the 100th Anniversary of Lambda Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon. If you joined us for this momentus event on November 10-11, 2017, you know that it was a great celebration! And if you didn’t make, we hope you will visit the chapter house soon. We would like to see you.

Yours in the Brotherhood,

Benjamin Johnson '18,
