Assist by DePauw Delta Kappa Epsilon Alumni Gets IU Chapter New Home
December 12, 2003
December 12, 2003, Greencastle, Ind. - The Indiana University chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon is getting new digs, thanks to the assistance of DePauw University Deke alumni. The IU Dekes will lease the former Sigma Phi Epsilon house in Bloomington beginning next August. A story in the Indiana Daily Student says the IU Deke chapter "actually raised the money to lease the house from alumni at DePauw University. The DePauw chapter of the fraternity probably won't return to the campus for another decade or so, meaning plenty of alumni are willing to support the IU chapter, said Eric Freeman, DePauw Chairman of the Chapter Foundation."
Freeman, a 1984 graduate of DePauw, tells the newspaper, "When they called me a few years ago, I was really impressed with them. And since we were the only Deke chapter in Indiana for more than 100 years, we were glad to help." Cullen Harkness, the president of Delta Kappa Epsilon at IU, adds, "This is one of the most outstanding things ever. We can rush now and establish ourselves on campus and really root ourselves in the Greek community at IU. Being one of the smaller fraternities on campus, this is a great opportunity for us."
