Mu Phi Epsilon
Dallas Alumni Chapter
Foster the ideas of service to school and community
Develop an awareness that artistic gifts are to be shared
Promote high scholarship, musicianship and friendship through service
Provide opportunities for strong artistic and personal abilities
I believe in MUSIC, the noblest of all arts;
A source of much that is good, just and beautiful;
In FRIENDSHIP, marked by love, kindness and sincerity;
And in HARMONY, the essence of a true and happy life.
I believe in the sacred bonds of our Fraternity - loyal, generous and self-sacrificing, and its strength shall ever guide me in the path that leads upwards to the stars.
by Ruth Jane Kirby - Omega Chapter
