Tau Kappa Epsilon of Oakland University Upsilon-Xi Chapter
TKE was founded by five methodist seminarians in 1899 at Illinois Wesleyan College as the "Knights of Classic Lore". These men "desired an organization different from those represented by the existing fraternities. Their desire was to establish a fraternity in which the primary requisites for membership would be the personal worth and character of the individual rather than the wealth he possessed, the honors or titles he could display, or the rank he maintained on the social ladder. The Founders of the KCL had little regard for many of the common characteristics of fraternities at that time, including their usual snobbery and disdain for persons outside of a fraternity."

Happy Martin Luther King Day to everyone. King once said: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” The men of TKE stand together as a diverse group of young men from different backgrounds and will continue to work against racism, inequality, and injustice on campus and in our everyday lives.

It is with heavy hearts that our chapter announces that earlier this week a dear brother of ours, Darnell, has passed away. Darnell was more than just a brother. He had the type of personality that everyone clicked with and he made you feel at home, as he genuinely cared for everyone. We will never forget the way that he lit up a room when he walked into it. We will truly miss you and your infectious laughter and spirit. Rest easy brother. We love you❤️
