The Alpha Delta Pi Creed

Since I’m bored (and multi-tasking), I might as well as get this out of my system or I’ll be thinking about it a whole lot later on.  I was looking through a national sorority’s website and happened to come across their Creed, something all members follow and live by during their membership in college and as alumnae.  It is beautifully written and encompasses what the sorority stands for and believes in.  Out of 26 national sororities, this is probably one of the best ones I’ve seen.

As quoted directly from the sorority’s national website:

The Creed of Alpha Delta Pi
I believe in Alpha Delta Pi.  I believe that my sorority is more than a ritual or a symbol; that it is a way of life.  I believe that the principles established by our founders in 1851 are enduring attributes, exemplifying the highest ideals of Christian womanhood.  I believe that our motto, “We Live for Each Other,” expresses the true spirit of fraternity; and that by living this motto my life will be enriched by true friendships and by unselfish service to mankind.  I believe that the privilege of membership in Alpha Delta Pi brings the responsibility to do my best in whatever I undertake, always remembering that leadership requires confidence tempered with humility and courage blended with tolerance.  I believe that I must strive to become a well-balanced person by following the dictates of the four points symbolized by our diamond-shaped badge: first, strengthening my own character and personality; second, watching my attitudes toward my fellow-beings; third, recognizing the value of high educational standards; and fourth, developing faith and loyalty.  I believe that these four guide-posts, guarded by the stars and friendly hands clasped in the Adelphean bonds of fellowship will lead me to achieve a rich and useful life.

I intend on posting more in the future, as soon as I have more time.  I look forward to comments about what you think it means to you.  In the meantime, back to work…
