Sept. 18, 2008

SELINSGROVE, (Pa.) – The Susquehanna University chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) was one of eleven chapters worldwide to be honored as a Top TKE Chapter. The award is the highest chapter distinction at the undergraduate level.

It recognizes excellence in six areas: academics, recruitment, philanthropy, alumni relations, chapter size and extracurricular involvement. Susquehanna's TKE chapter achieved excellence in all six areas and was one of five chapters to receive the award for the second year in a row.

The chapter's president, Andrew Jarzyk, thanks the Susquehanna TKE members for their contributions toward winning this award, especially Matt Darwin, vice president, for leading the effort in the application process for the award and Frank Minniti and Adam Rann who helped to plan various alumni relations events. Thanks also go to Michael Ziegler, recruitment chairman, who helped in the recruitment of 15 new TKE members during the 2007-2008 school year, as well as Kurt Leitzel and Kevin Tylus, philanthropy chairs, who led the chapter's community service efforts.

Founded in 1899 at Illinois Wesleyan University, Tau Kappa Epsilon is the largest social fraternity in the world with chapters on more than 270 campuses in the United States and Canada. TKE has initiated more than 242,000 men since its founding. The fraternity's purpose is to contribute to the advancement of society through the personal growth of its members and service to others.
