The Kappa Epsilon Fraternity was founded on February 22,1968 by (12) students from the College of Engineering of the University of the Philippines. It was dream of these individuals to give other students an option to join a non-traditional fraternity.
In July 29, 1990, 14 UPLB students were initiated by the members of Kappa Epsilon UP Diliman Chapter to form the the first batch of KE members in UPLB. Thus, the UPLB Chapter was born.
In the following years, UPLB brethren established chapters in UP Baguio, UP Mindanao, PUP Quezon, Batangas, Oriental Mindoro and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the Middle East.
