The Founding of Epsilon Rho

The Epsilon Rho Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon was founded at Duke University on April 3rd, 1983.

Fun Facts

  • Epsilon Rho has traditionally had close ties with Duke’s club quidditch team, with a significant portion of our members also being a part of the team.
  • Outside of COVID, our chapter makes an annual trek to the Richmond National Battlefield Park, where the events of the “Brothers in DKE” poem took place during the Civil War.
  • We have doubled in size each of the past two years.

Philanthropy and Service

Brothers of Epsilon Rho have worked to clean public spaces, collaborated with Panda Express to create a fundraiser for Hope Animal Rescue (a non-profit organization based in North Carolina devoted to rescuing and rehoming dogs in the state), and organized furniture drives in recent years. On top of that, they partnered with the Nu Alpha chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon at Northeastern University for a philanthropy event over the summer.
