The Creed of Theta Chi
These immortal words were first penned in 1915 by Brother Frank Schrenk of the Kappa Chapter at the University of Pennsylvania. The Creed of Theta Chi is the foundation of all we stand for. Every last word holds tremendous importance and displays the values and goals of the Brotherhood.
I believe in Theta Chi, its traditions and its ideals. Born of sturdy manhood, nurtured by resolute men, ennobled by high and sacred purpose, it has taken its place among the educational institutions of America as a promoter of knowledge, an advancer of culture and a builder of character.
It inspires true friendship: teaches Truth, Temperance and Tolerance, extols virtue, exacts harmony, and extends a helping hand to all who seek it.
I believe in the primacy of Alma Mater; in the usefulness of my Fraternity, in its influence and its accomplishments and I shall do all in my power to perpetuate its ideals, thereby serving my God, my country and my fellow-man.
