What We Believe
Fraternities since the 1820s have been based on secrets, lies, deceits, elite status, and unmerited success in North America. We shun those values.
As the most Progressive fraternity, our core values and principles, which we honor in our everyday lives are as follows.
For over a century Fraternities have been groups hiding behind closed doors, only for the exceptionally privileged. We believe that this experience should be for everyone, no matter race, origin, beliefs, ethnicity, (and in some cases Gender). Our chapter Meetings are open to the public, our cornerstone and ritual book are published as public works for everyone to see, we do not fear the truth for we have nothing to hide.
We value character, merit, and integrity. Hazing is a barbaric ritual that demeans all of those things. Thus we do not practice tit as it would not only demean our prospective members, it would demean our active members as well.

We pride ourselves honor diversity. This is a home to Christians, Muslims, Jews, and Agnostics. A place where fundamental disagreements are overlooked as we are all brothers in the end. But that does not stop us from heavy philosophical debate from time to time.
