Individuals in our fraternity uphold a strict code of morals and ideals. Maintaining a high GPA, an active involvement in the community and working with organizations at the school; a lot is expected of a member. Strong bonds of brotherhood help achieve these lofty goals. We are constantly focused on becoming a better person, realizing that it is impossible to be a perfect gentleman, yet nonetheless striving to be one.
We Strive to be a Gentleman
Do not go through life being mediocre, mediocrity is far too common. You have unlimited potential before you, simply reach out and grasp it, and never let go. I leave you with this quote from confucious, “A gentleman would be ashamed should his deeds not match his words,” come see our deeds.
The True Gentleman
The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
