Phi Kappa Psi
Phi Kappa Psi was established at Beloit in 1881 and continued until 1971. It was reactivated in 1977 and has continued to the present day.
It is the home of a brotherhood with proud traditions and firm beliefs. The fraternity was founded by William Henry Letterman and Charles Paige Thomas Moore in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania in 1852, its colors are cardinal red and hunter green, and its flower is the jacqueminot rose. Phi Kappa Psi was founded in the name of “The Great Joy of Serving Others” and exists for the perpetuation of that idea. We strictly adhere to progressive liberal ideas of inclusiveness and understanding, because we believe that they will make us better individuals, and a better brotherhood. It is often said by our housekeepers that we have the cleanest fraternity house of the three on campus, but we leave it to our beloved guests to decide for themselves. Phi Kappa Psi strives to make its home welcome to all students, alumni, and friends of the fraternity, and hold proudly their immortal title; “Men of Excellence.”

Tau Kappa Epsilon
Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) is an international chapter which currently consists of over 250 chapters between the United States and Canada. TKE has the most active chapters of any other fraternity in the United States. Apollo, the god of music, culture, light, and truth, is the patron god of TKE and embodies all of the ideals toward which the members strive to attain. Beloit College houses the Kappa (or tenth) chapter of TKE. The chapter makes many contributions to the Beloit College community, and even the city of Beloit. Among other things, the Kappa chapter raises hundreds of dollars each year to be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital by hosting various fundraising events, requires each of its members to give back to the community by doing 10 hours of community service, and encourages academic excellence by requiring its members to partake in study hours each week.
