TKE is the largest international fraternity with more than 360 chapters in the United States and Canada. It was founded at Illinois Wesleyan University
in 1899 with the avowed purpose of encouraging men in mental, moral,
and social development. Above all else, TKE stands for men, not wealth,
rank, or honor, but for personal worth and character. As of 1989, TKE
became one of the first fraternities to eliminate the pledge program.
Wagner's local fraternity, Omicron Pi Theta, became an affiliate of Tau
Kappa Epsilon on May 26, 1957 installed as Zeta Alpha Chapter.
