(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – Alpha Epsilon Pi International Fraternity (AEPi), the world’s largest and leading Jewish college fraternity has returned to Tulane University’s campus to once again provide a Jewish college fraternity experience for students.

Ten men from across the country comprise the initial re-founding father class. “I’m confident that we have a group of men who will make us proud and be a credit to our fraternity, our legacy at Tulane and to our Jewish community,” said Rob Derdiger, Alpha Epsilon Pi CEO.

Originally founded in 1951, the Tulane chapter — the Tau Upsilon Chapter – has a proud history of campus and Jewish community leadership throughout the South and across the country.

“Our fraternity’s mission is to develop the future leaders of the world’s Jewish communities. I look forward to watching our Tulane chapter grow and succeed in that mission,” added Derdiger.
