I believe in Delta Kappa Alpha, its principles and its traditions.
I will be loyal to my college, my chapter, and my Fraternity by keeping strong ties and retaining the spirit of youth.
In helping others follow their bliss, I shall ask for no reward, I shall seek no glory.
I will put character above wealth and my actions will follow my word.
I will preserve the history of Cinema and the heritage of my Fraternity.
I say with all sincerity; Delta Kappa Alpha has given me honor and distinction; the bond of our fellowship is reciprocal,
I will endeavor to so develop myself and so conduct myself that I will ever be a credit to our Fraternity.
