Chapter History

On March 3, 2001, a group of men gathered to discuss the beginnings of a new brotherhood. They were fascinated by the idea of a collective brotherhood of men based upon personal worth and character, but were not interested by any of the fraternities currently on campus. After extensive research, they decided that Tau Kappa Epsilon was an identical match to their morals and beliefs, and Colony 758 was born.

 Eleven years later, on November 3, 2012, Colony 758 became the Upsilon Sigma Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon. Through hard work and dedication, we became the first successful colony at UAM in over 70 years. However, the work has only just begun. We strive every day to become Better Men for a Better World through our six principles: Scholarship, Leadership, Character, Teamwork, Service, and Brotherhood.

The Upsilon-Sigma Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon at University of Arkansas-Monticello was installed as a chapter on November 3, 2012.

Since 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon has never had an exclusionary clause for membership. TKE does not judge men on their wealth, rank or honor, but instead on their personal worth and character.

Our mission is to "to aid men in their mental, moral, and social development for life." In essence, we build Better Men for a Better World.
