    Elvis Presley was NOT really a TEKE. In 1960 the TKE chapter president at Arkansas State College cooked up a publicity stunt, and they made Presley an honorary TKE.
    Presley was a known racist. I don’t think any institution should be proud to have him associated with them.

  27. Nick says:

    Take a look at the alumni of DKE in awe. No fraternity even comes close. 5 presidents, countless businessmen, incredible sports figures, inventors, and explorers. We discovered the north pole and have been on the moon. We have coached superbowl victories, own the Yankees, have coached college football longer than anyone, won a Heisman, and commisioned baseball. We founded Wrigley gum, Heinz ketchup, Proctor and Gamble, Colgate-Palomolive, and several more. We designed the Golden Gate Bridge, devised the Dewey Decimal System, and wrote the Scarlet Letter. Fed-ex, GE, AT&t, Southwest Airlines, Busch-Lomb, IBM, JP Morgan, and Xerox are all attributed to DKEs. We have revolutionized the world, and although some other fraternities have impressive alumni, they all fail in comparison to the brothers of Delta Kappa Epsilon.
