About Epsilon

The Epsilon Chapter at Iowa State University is the fifth chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. We were the first chapter to expand outside of the state of Illinois and are now the longest continuously operating chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon. Our chapter was established on May 28, 1915 and we have been going strong for over 100 years with our centennial in 2015.  The original house was constructed in 1915 when TKE began at Iowa State. Additions were made to the house in the early 1960’s, which doubled the size of the house. Today, the house can hold 60 men in suite style living. Each floor has bathrooms and showers and a few rooms have private showers as well. Single rooms, double rooms, four man rooms, and five man rooms are available. There are two libraries in the house, Spike and Kaser, for individual studying and group study work, respectively. The house also has a chapter room with a pool/ping pong table and an 80 inch projector. The kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which are prepared by a personal chef.


Brotherhood events are activities we all do together. This promotes bonding as a chapter and brings us all closer as a group. Some of the things we did this year for brotherhood were movie nights, stay in night along with pick up football, basketball and volleyball games. We also started the brotherhood point system.  In this system members receive points for going to intramural sporting events the chapter participates in.  This is done to promote chapter unity and bonding.
