“We have chosen to name our house after Professor Margaret Smith, and as a residence, we pledge to the following:
- to being a residence of academic excellence (especially seeing that Margaret Smith was an outstanding woman academic in a time when men dominated her career field);
- to embracing our diversity in all aspects, united in an essence of family;
- to social growth: remaining respectful and charitable to each other and to the community around us;
- and finally to be women of loyalty, of virtue and of strength.
These are qualities we hope generations to come after us will also embody, contributing to a wonderful residence culture fitting for all, and at large, to a better society.
