Since 1963, Iota Phi Theta has
become very vociferous with its statement through the development
and perpetuation of scholarship, leadership, brotherhood, fidelity, and
citizenship among men nationwide. And with these basic
principles in the hearts, minds, and souls of every Theta man, the Fraternity
has since sought to overcome all obstacles in the way of its progress.
This perseverance and strength of character has proven to become its legacy.
This legacy has
guided the Fraternity in the pursuit of greatness, shining brightly in
the midst of darkness. It has allowed us to experience jubilation
in our highs and to foresee vindication in the midst of our lows.
This legacy has also afforded us the opportunity to take membership
in the National Pan Hellenic Council as of the fall of 1996 and thus,
has provided us with the impetus to expand our base. This legacy
has kept us for our thirty-five (35)-plus years of existence and will
continue to do into the new millennium. For as we push forth, we are building
a tradition, not resting upon one!
