User Comments:
• A colony of Tau Kappa Epsilon was founded on Michigan Tech campus on January 7, 1968. On May 3, 1969 the colony was granted chapter status when its fifty members became officially recognized with the international T.K.E.Since becoming a Chapter one year ago TKE has obtained a fine fraternity house which has absorbed much of their time. They still are strong competitors in all campus activities while placing much stress on grade point which calls for a special group of men.Tekes believe they should maintain respect and dignity toward other fraternities while still assuming a friendly and respectful outlook toward non-fraternity men. We believe that the essential elements of true brotherhood, in conduct as well as in name, are love, charity, and esteem. Our goals for the upcoming year include general house improvements, improving public relations, working on intramural sports and maintaining scholarship. [1970 Keweenawan, page 210]

• I was not in the 1970 TKE photo (I never joined a frat) but my good friend Rick Poznanski is. He is the third from the left in the front. -- Ken DeBack, MTU Class of 1973

• I was on the TKE roof in 1970 for this picture that was in the Keweenawan photograph. The TKE chapter house was purchased in 1969 and I was one of the residence during the 1969-1970 school year. I recall the roof was considered the beach - no sand and no water, so why the beach. Could it be the snow that we shoveled off the roof and occasionally jumped into (snow is a form of water)? -- Joe Eutizi, BSME, MTU Class of 1971

• I am in the front row third from the right. The person on my left is Bill McKilligan, whom I believe to still be working for Tech. -- Tom Kay
