Community Service and Campus Involvement

TKE is proud to be very involved on campus with members getting involved in student government, academic clubs, and even athletics.

Every member of TKE is required to do a minimum of 12 service hours per semester. This can be achieved by doing highway cleanups, attending philanthropy events, or volunteering to help the community. 12 hours is a baseline with almost all of our members achieving more than the required 12 hours. The members of the Epsilon Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon push each other
to show our community how much we are able to give back. During the 2018 year, as a total, the Epsilon Chapter has put in 6,603 hours of service. These hours benefit our Ames community, the state of Iowa, and many other communities around us. We were able to do this by hosting the Meals from the Heartland organization, and packaging over 20,000 rice and soy meals. As an Iowa State Greek Community large-organization record, 94% of Tekes attended our Meals from the Heartland packaging event. We also hosted 13 sorority Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women members and 2 alumni members also attedned. The event was the first of its kind for the community and the men are ecstatic to continue the efforts in the coming semesters. There are many other service events that our men take part in. A few are Greek Week Service, ISU Blood Drive, and the ISU Up ‘Til Dawn event.
