Philosophy

Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s creed is “The True Gentleman”

“The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.”

– John Walter Wayland

SAEs strive to adhere to this creed. It is committed to memory by all members. Taken seriously, it serves as a guide to living a fulfilling and honorable life.IMG_1925-corrected-Philosophy
