What is PKP's creed?
I believe that the ideal chapter is made up of men
Who are bound together in a common loyalty
which transcends any personal selfishness;
Who realize that membership means personal responsibility in bearing their share of the financial burden of the chapter and the national organization;
Who bring credit to the fraternity by striving to attain the highest possible standards of scholarship;
Who safeguard the reputation of their chapter
by keeping careful watch over their personal conduct;
Who uphold faithfully the
traditions and activities of their college;
Who prepare themselves diligently to shoulder their full responsibility as citizens.
I believe that my chapter can become an ideal chapter, and I shall do my share to make it so.
What are the lyrics to the rose song?
As I sat alone with my dreams
A beautiful land I did see
And a vision so bright
Came to me through the night
With my dream girl I seemed to be
Oh her eyes are the stars of Heaven
As they shine as a lamp so bright
Her lips are the rose's petals
Which open their folds to the light
Her hair is the gold of sunset
As it fades in the Western sky
No flower that grows is like the Rose
She's the flower of Pi Kappa Phi.
