The Kappa Epsilon Fraternity was founded in the
1960's by a group of students from
the College of Engineering of the
of the Philippines. There were (12) twelve founding
members headed by Alvin Manalang.
It was dream of these individuals to give other
students an option
to join a non-traditional
fraternity. They used the greek letters Kappa and Epsilon
since the ideal that the fraternity aspired to was Knowledge,
Equality and Enlightenment.
From a few members, the
Kappa Epsilon Fraternity grew to have
a significant presence in the University of the
Philippines, active in major changes that where happening in the Academe.
The student leaders looked up to the fraternity for leadership and
guidance. The picture below was taken after a meeting that
the fraternity conducted at Vinzon's
Hall. That building is the center
of all student activities since it all houses the
University Student Council
Headquarters and the Office of Student Affairs. The Kappa Epsilon
Fraternity became co-founders of the famed
of Filipino Students, SAMASA and many other student organizations.

hundred brothers gathered at one time. Picture below is
