Tau Epsilon Phi (ΤΕΦ), commonly known as TEP or Tep, is an American fraternity with 13 active chapters, 5 active colonies, and 10 official alumni clubs[2] chiefly located at universities and colleges on the East Coast. The national headquarters is located in the New Jersey township of Voorhees and the official colors of the organization are lavender and white (although most chapters use purple instead of lavender).[3]


The organization's creed asserts its governing ideals as "friendship, chivalry, service." TEP attracts and accepts brothers of all religions and ethnicities who agree to be bound by these ideals. Chapters uphold these ideals through participation in various social, academic, athletic and charity events.
