Welcome to the webpage of the Beta-Beta Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon at North Carolina State
University! Since our chartering on January 18th, 1947 Beta-Beta has become a prominent organization
on NC State’s Campus. Our brotherhood is currently comprised of 50 well-rounded men from various
backgrounds and a wide-range of experiences that have brought us all together and inspired
us to enter into the lifelong bond that is Tau Kappa Epsilon. Over the years, our chapter has worked
hard to receive various esteemed awards and recognitions, volunteer thousands of hours of our free
time for community service, as well as raise tens-of-thousands of dollars for charity.
Here at Beta-Beta we believe that giving back to the community around us is an important part of
being such a fortunate organization. This is why we proudly support St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital by
hosting and participating in a variety of philanthropic events each year; as well as assisting other Greek
organizations in donating money to their respective charities. In addition to our philanthropic activities
we enjoy volunteering our time to help out the less-fortunate through organizations such as Habitat
for Humanity. Each brother in Beta-Beta volunteers an average of 12 community service hours each
semester- which multiplies to over 1,200 volunteer hours for the chapter every year! As you can see
this is something we esteem and distinguish ourselves with a great amount.
We also pride ourselves on the influence that Beta-Beta has on the NC State campus. Every brother
participates in at least one campus organization other than TKE. A few examples of organizations
where Beta-Beta possesses a strong presence include the Inter-Fraternity Council, College Republicans,
multiple Academic and Honor Societies and a plethora of other major-related clubs. We strive to leave
every position we hold better than we found it and to leave our legacy upon the University. When faced
with adversity, no one is better suited for challenging themselves, accomplishing their goals, and leading
others more than a Beta-Beta Teke. These classic leadership abilities have been present in brothers
since the beginning of our chapter- adding yet another reason to become a Teke. This reason is found
in many of our esteemed alumni that even today have a presence in their surrounding communities-
providing us with perfect networking opportunities and strong connections for future ventures.
I personally have been a part of Beta-Beta since I pledged in the Fall of 2010 and I think I speak for the
whole chapter when I say that this address merely scratches the surface of the wonderful benefits of
becoming a Teke. I trust that it has shown you what we are all about here at Beta-Beta and NC State
University, but if you do have any questions or would simply like to hear more about us feel free to
contact me at any point, as I am always available!
