The pledge reads as follows:

For the glory of Old State:
I pledge to foster a spirit
That empowers and educates.
I pledge to have dignity and respect
To honor those that came before
And those that will embrace
These principles in time.
I pledge that no act of mine
Will bring shame so that I may
Embody the character of Penn State.

Signees will be entered into a drawing for tours of the Bryce Jordan Center, Beaver Stadium, and the Lasch Football Building. In addition, free t-shirts will be available.

How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
