Delta Kappa Epsilon was the first fraternity founded at the University of Virginia in 1852. Since our inception, we have celebrated a brotherhood of more differences than similarities. With hometowns ranging from Australia to New Orleans and everywhere in between, we are a brotherhood of different backgrounds. We celebrate our different interests as we have a multitude of varsity athletes, students involved in the arts and academic scholars. Our mission is to instill values of leadership, discipline, and integrity that will last a lifetime. The lessons learned through our experiences as active members of Delta Kappa Epsilon stay with us for life.
