TKE USC Spring 2017 New Initiates

Jack Jablonski on ESPN E:60April 8, 2017

Jack Jablonski

Watch the ESPN E:60 feature on Jack Jablonski, a Junior at USC and a member of Beta-Sigma TKE. It’s a powerful story about tragedy and hope. Much of the feature is filmed at USC TKE and you will recognize our chapter room, library and backyard.

RIP Frater David HarbuckMarch 31, 2017

David and Jill Harbuck

We will miss Frater Dave Harbuck (#842). Dave pledged TKE as a freshman in the Fall of 1989 and graduated from USC in 1993.  He died on March 16, 2017 at the very young age of 45.  He is survived by his wife Jill; daughter Haley, and son Cooper.

RIP Frater Thayer HolbrookMarch 23, 2017


Thayer Holbrook 1958 TKE USC

Sad news arrived today from Jerry Murphy…”My good friend and Frater Thayer Holbrook has been suffering for many years. This morning his suffering ended. Frater (bwana) Holbrook passed away. ”  In honor of Frater Thayer we are posting this photo from the LA Times Archives (April 12, 1959). Its caption reads: Surrounded by friends and fraternity brothers, Thayer Holbrook (Beta-Sigma #352), 19-year-old University of Southern California freshman, cools his feet after playing table tennis for 50 hours at Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity house.

“I would have gone on longer,” he told a cheering crowd of spectators, “but I have classes tomorrow.”

RIP Frater

Merry ChristmasDecember 22, 2016
