Homecoming 2017!

Fraters,

Mark your calendars!! The Mu Omega TKE Alumni Association is back at it again for Homecoming 2017 festivities. It is always our goal to make this our keystone event that brings fraters from all eras back to good Ol’ Fairfax to cheer on our Mason Patriots!

The schedule of events on Saturday 2/11/17 go as such:

Block Party/Tailgate (3pm-5:30pm):

Mason allows us to tailgate in their designated area in Lot K on campus. The plan is to repeat our set up last year and have food provided for your enjoyment. Of course this is mostly paid for by the Alumni Association so annual dues/donations are always encouraged (Hint Hint )

GMU vs. Fordham Game! (6pm):

Block seating is set up so that we can all sit and cheer together! Using the link provided you can purchase tickets in our section. Just in time for the holidays! Would make a great gift! $13

Remembering Frater Jason Panek

JPAH1332

Frater Jason Panek’s path in Tau Kappa Epsilon was not typical, and sadly has abruptly turned as he has passed into Chapter Eternal. He began his new member candidacy at the Mu-Omega Chapter,  and eventually upon transferring to Rutgers University, he was initiated into the Alpha-Eta chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon, signing the scroll with number Alpha Eta 1332. He will be greatly missed and remembered fondly by Fraters from both chapters and across TKE Nation as a selfless and genuine individual who would do anything he could to put a smile on your face or improve your mood, even if it was at his own expense.

Below are Jason’s arrangement details and a public obituary:
