Frequently Asked Questions
What is a fraternity?
A fraternity is group of individuals bound to life-long friendship by commonly held goals or values.
How is the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity different?
Delta Kappa Epsilon is truly a life-long allegiance. The ties that bind us together stop not at graduation, at state or national boundaries, at political or philosophical lines, or even in war. That love which comes from the combination of stout hearts and kindred interests is truly special; it lasts while life lasts.
What are DKE's goals as a fraternity?
DKE's stated goals are the Objects of Delta Kappa Epsilon, which are:
The cultivation of general literature and social culture, the advancement and encouragement of intellectual excellence, the promotion of honorable friendship and useful citizenship, the development of a spirit of tolerance and respect for the rights and views of others, the maintenance of gentlemanly dignity, self-respect, and morality in all circumstances, and the union of stout hearts and kindred interests to secure, to merit its due reward.
What is DKE's stance on hazing in college fraternities?
In short, hazing is illegal and immoral; therefore it has no place in our Fraternity. More importantly, Delta Kappa Epsilon holds its members to the highest standard possible. Whereas hazing violates local, state, and federal law it also violates the Objects of Delta Kappa Epsilon, particularly "the maintenance of gentlemanly dignity, self-respect, and morality in all circumstances." DKE maintains a zero tolerance policy for hazing.
