Nu-Eta Colony Established at Boise State
BOISE, Idaho – After nearly two decades of inactivity, the Boise State University chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon has been re-established. Although they have only been granted colony status as of the fall semester, the BSU Tekes are highly motivated and have plans to be chartered by the spring of the 2009-10 school year. The TKE movement started early in the fall semester. Frater Matt Gutierrez (Upsilon-Iota, IUPUI), Assistant Director of Chapter Services - Expansion, began recruiting efforts before classes started. Within three weeks, TKE was the largest fraternity on campus with more than twenty men. Soon after the Tekes were paid a visit by TKE CEO Kevin Mayeux and were awarded colony recognition. Within three more weeks the Tekes were conducting fraternity operations and still growing.
The Nu-eta colony has been actively involved in campus activities, recruiting, philanthropy, and community service. Intramural football, soccer, basketball, and volleyball teams have been established. Recruiting tables are operated several times a week and have been consistently followed up with recruitment and social events like bowling, pool, and Bronco football tailgating. The Bronco Tekes also raised more than $400 for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital selling lollipops on campus. In addition, members have helped remodel the Black Hills Learning Center while setting up and cataloging exhibits for the new Black History Museum of Idaho. The young men have dove right into fraternity operations and have been able to organize and perform extremely efficiently. As a result TKE has gained widespread popularity amongst their Greek peers.
The Offices of the Grand Chapter is very proud of the men of Nu-Eta and looks forward to seeing many great things from them in the near future.
