When you choose to become a TKE, you’re choosing to take your college experience to an entirely different level. The days of wasting time on the couch in your dorm room will quickly become a thing of the past. TKEs are men of action. And as a member of TKE, you will become part of an exciting academic, social and cooperative lifestyle, doing for your brothers what you would do for yourself.
Here at Clarkson University, as we're bringing TKE back onto campus, all active brothers understand its importance. By being a founding member of a fraternity is something that nobody can ever take away from you. By being a TKE here at Clarkson, you will leave an imprint on the University and a lasting mark on the community that is unparalleled in any other Greek organization on campus. While every Fraternity as unique traits that make them great, TKEs here at CU, pride themselves on establishing their name here forever.
Rushing TKE isn't an experience that will last only during your time at college. By rushing TKE, you enter a bond that will last a lifetime.
These men aren't the ones that you won't see or communicate with after graduation. These men are your brothers--forever. These men are the ones that will be the best man at your wedding, your best friends, and most importantly, these men are the ones that will become a part of your family.
Being a TKE isn't just about great times and hard work as a college student. Your advantages as a TKE will be a major part of your future even after you walk off that stage with your diploma. You've heard it before: It's not only what you know; it’s who you know. And the connections you will have with nearly 200,000 successful TKE alumni can be the key to unlocking your career goals
It's no mystery that TKEs work hard, but they play hard too. There's never a dull day in the social life of a TKE, which can include everything from weekend parties of all shapes and sizes to just relaxing with your brothers. When TKEs come out to play on campus, they don't go unnoticed. Getting together for things like cheering together on game-days, leading in intramural sports or having a major presence at local service events is standard for TKEs. And off-campus, it's not uncommon for a TKE to round up some brothers for a weekend road trip on the fly.
