All student organizations at CSUSM go through a recognition process which includes advisement, education, and expectations from the campus and CSU. Additionally fraternities and sororities (please refer to the Chapter Directory) are provided training/education and have policies/procedures from the University and their individual regional/inter/national groups around organizational and risk management. Your student may be recruited by a group not recognized by CSUSM or following policies outlined in the Student Organization and/or Fraternity/Sorority Handbooks. There are risks associated with affiliation of non-recognized organizations. Please reference the recognized chapter letter for fall 2018 for the most up to date list.
On August 22, 2014, University Police issued a Campus Alert which provides information regarding investigations of reports of sexual assaults purportedly involving the Tau Kappa Epsilon of San Marcos (TKE) fraternity and its members and the use of date rape drugs. TKE has not been a part of the Cal State San Marcos Fraternity & Sorority community since 2005 and is not a recognized student organization. CSUSM discourages your presence at or near TKE social events and parties could place you in danger of sexual assault, date rape drugs, or similar illegal drug use and abuse. Take steps to protect yourself as well as your friends.
