A Fort Hays State University fraternity is in trouble.

According to the school, the Alpha-Upsilon Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity has been placed on non-operating status, as of April 2nd. The school says that the chapter failed to meet minimum fraternity standards and university expectations. These expectations include membership size, academic performance, and financial obligations.

According to the college, FHSU officials support TKE International Fraternity’s decision to place the chapter in non-operating status. “We appreciate Tau Kappa Epsilon’s initiative to hold TKE chapters to a higher standard”, said Jacob Ternes, coordinator of student involvement and Greek life for FHSU.

Founded on Jan. 10, 1899, at Illinois Wesleyan University, Tau Kappa Epsilon is one of the world’s largest social fraternities with chapters on more than 270 campuses in the United States and Canada. TKE has initiated more than 260,000 men since its founding. The fraternity builds better men for a better world.
