I Believe in Democracy . . . A Democracy characterized by the practice of Justice in every relation of life. I hold that Justice is the Foremost Principle to be considered in making my decisions as a member of the Commons Club, the student body and as a citizen. I believe in that broad conception of Democracy that seeks Freedom of Opportunity, and recognizes no arbitrary discrimination.
I Believe in Service . . . Service to the college; Service to every group organized for the common good; Service to the individual. I believe in Service defined in terms of voluntary sacrifice for the welfare of those with whom I come in contact.
I Believe in Brotherhood . . . Brotherhood that reaches beyond the limits of the Commons Club and welcomes every person as my Brother. I believe in the intrinsic worth of the person at my side and in their ability to make good and justify my faith in them.
I hold these beliefs as my profound conviction, and I pledge my fellow Brothers to live up to them to the best of my ability.
