To all our alumni members, we’d appreciate it if you took a moment to complete the following survey so we can better understand how TEΦ National can best serve you.

Alumni Survey

Winter 2018 Plume

On behalf of the entire Grand Council, I’m happy to share with you the latest version of the TEP Plume. Thank you to Dave Cass and everyone who helped with edition. I hope you enjoy.

Memberplanet

I am excited to report that Tau Epsilon Phi has partnered with Memberplanet to handle all our communication and database needs. We started this process with our undergraduate chapters this past fall and are now looking to increase communication with our alumni members as well. Unfortunately we are missing a lot of contact information for many of our members, especially email addresses. For those of you who have shared your information with us over the past few years, you should receive an invitation to update your contact information. We strongly encourage you do so. We are hoping to send our latest version of the Plume via this system in the near future. That is currently being finalized. It is our hope an goal to be able to be able to find our lost members and also make this available to our chapters and alumni clubs. Should you have any questions, please reach out to our Consul, Tim Smith at consul@tep.org. We plan to share more about this system in the coming weeks and months as we work to rebuild the contact details for all our members.

Tau Omega – Interest Group

We are pleased to announce that our International Consul has authorized the establishment of an interest group at the University of Rhode Island. As a fraternity, we are excited to be partnering with a group of men to return to this campus. It is our hope that these re-founding fathers will become a colony later this semester. This will return our Fraternity to campus for the first time since 2014. Should anyone know of any students who might be interested in being a part of this experience or know of anyone in the Kingston, RI area who may wish to assist with this group, please reach out to our Director of Expansion & Chapter Development, Jason Berler at jberler@tep.org.

Zeta Tau Interest Group

Earlier today our International Consul authorized the establishment of an interest group at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington. As a fraternity, we are excited to be partnering with a group of 19 men on this campus and look forward to working with them in establishing a colony there. It is our hope that these founding fathers will become a reality in the Spring of 2018. This will be the first time that Tau Epsilon Phi is on this campus and will be designated as Zeta Tau. Should anyone know of any students who might be interested in being a part of this experience or know of anyone in the Wilmington, NC area who may wish to assist with this group, please reach out to our Director of Expansion & Chapter Development, Jason Berler at jberler@tep.org.

Penn State Colony Re-established

This past weekend members of the Grand Council, staff and alumni from our Epsilon Phi chapter gathered in State College, PA to oversee the initiation of the re-founding father class of our Epsilon Phi colony at Penn State University. We are excited that these 19 men choose to start a new group on that campus. I’d particularly like to thank Jason Berler our Director of Expansion & Chapter Development for all his work in establishing the group. I’d also like to thank alumnus David Glicini who oversaw the candidacy program and is now serving as their chapter advisor. I’d also like to thank alumnus Steve Wernick head of the Epsilon Phi Alumni Association for his assistance and dedication in making this new group a reality. In such a short period of time, this group is making serious headway on their campus, reportedly having the third largest pledge class for the Fall 2017 semester. We welcome all our new Brothers into the Portals of Tau Epsilon Phi and wish you the utmost success in your collegiate careers.

Happy Founders Day

Happy Founders Day to all our Brothers near and far.

It is a great honor and privilege to announce on this the anniversary of our 107th year of our founding that we have inducted 20 candidates into the newest colony of our Fraternity at Penn State University. With the consent of the Grand Council, last evening, I authorized the re-founding of the Epsilon Phi Colony. We are excited for this group and look forward to welcoming them into the Portals of the Fraternity.

Thank you to Jason Berler, our Director of Expansion & Chapter Development for all his hard work on making this group a reality.
