Values of Beta Gamma Sigma

Honor: Honor is personal integrity and excellence of character. It is an enduring quality found in all persons who deserve to lead others.

Wisdom: Wisdom is knowledge tested by experience and tempered by discerning judgment. It abhors prejudice, it insists upon freedom of thought and expression.

Earnestness: Earnestness is enthusiasm measured by achievement, disciplined by reason and ennobled by sincerity. It is that dynamic quality which is essential for all great achievement.
