224 Ash Avenue
Ames, IA 50014

Epsilon Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon is a social fraternity that prides itself on helping men become the best forms of themselves. We help our men develop socially, academically, and morally. Despite being a large chapter, we are extremely tight-knit. The chapter has won ten consecutive Top TKE awards for being a top-performing chapter and is the longest standing TKE chapter internationally.

Nickname Teke
Philanthropy All of the money we raise benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This is our philanthropy because Danny Thomas, the founder of the hospital, was a TKE. We raise money in numerous ways. A few of the largest events we hold is Screams for St. Jude, which is where we turn our house into a huge haunted house, and Mac Attack, which is a macaroni and cheese bar hosted jointly with Delta Delta Delta sorority. The chapter also participates in numerous other smaller events for varying causes throughout the year. We pride ourselves on raising $50,000 in the last school year.
