Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity At Clarkson University Recognized For Excellence
The Tau Epsilon Phi National Fraternity of Vorhees, N.J., has recognized its Clarkson University chapter for outstanding communications.
The award was announced at a recent Tau Epsilon Phi chancellors meeting in New Jersey. Accepting the award on behalf of the chapter was Clarkson chapter chancellor John Mrowka (Spencerport, N.Y.). The national fraternity officially presented the $250 award to the Clarkson chapter at its annual Easter dinner in Potsdam.
“Tau Epsilon Phi has been extremely proactive this semester and I am very pleased that their accomplishments have been recognized by their peers and the national staff,” said Jason C. Libby, director of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs. “This is the fifth chapter at Clarkson to be recognized for outstanding achievements by their national headquarters this year. These are positive reflections for not only the entire fraternity and sorority system but the institution as well.”
Clarkson University fraternities and sororities must meet high standards of academic performance, conduct and community service. Last semester, the chapter succeeded in achieving cumulative grade-point averages of 2.9.
The Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity was founded at Columbia University in 1910 and has over 30 active chapters in the United States. The Clarkson chapter was formed in 1966 as the local fraternity Lambda Phi Epsilon before becoming a chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi less than a year later.
