"It is no coincidence that five presidents of the United States have been Dekes--more than any other fraternity--that our flag was flown on the first expedition to the North Pole and again on a manned landing to the moon. The individual qualities that DKE seeks have certainly stood the test of time and served us all in good stead.  It is that special blend of leadership, brotherhood, and tradition that fuels this fraternity."

--President and Brother, Gerald Ford. Omicron, Michigan '35

About DKE

Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity was founded on June 22, 1844 by 15 Yale College undergraduates.  A new society, considerate of character and merit, as gentleman and scholars, but also of good-fellowship, the Dekes broke the mold of Yale's Junior Societies, Psi Upsilon and Alpha Delta Phi.

The Fraternity's open motto, Kerothen Philoi Aei or Friends from the Heart, Forever was adopted, as was the DKE pin and the secret grip.
