TKEs Staging Sit-in at SWOSU


Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Southwestern Oklahoma State University is doing a fundraiser for the Khiva Shrine Center, which helps improve the lives of children who have spinal cord injuries, burns, and orthopedic conditions along with other disadvantages.

To help the cause, TKE members will be going door to door asking for donations and hosting a sit in. They will be on the front lawn of the Stafford Center on the Weatherford campus from March 9-13, 24 hours a day. During this time, there will be someone sitting in the booth all hours of the day and night.

Brett Whalen of TKE invites area residents to stop by and make donations or just visit with the men of Tau Kappa Epsilon.

TKE used to be a fixture on the SWOSU campus and was restarted this past year.

Whalen said TKE is in its first year but is already doing great things for the campus and the community. TKE members have dressed up and showed support at SWOSU sporting events and have been active in the intramural program at SWOSU. TKE also prides itself in community service. TKE has already adopted a portion of Interstate 40, which they clean up; has helped with Special Olympics; and helped with a Down Syndrome conference.
