We Wore the Quill High
We wore the quill high, tried to put it over the heart. April 17, 1893 - having no pins, we wore a long stemmed pink rose and a tiny badge of the colors. By the second winter we grew in self-esteem, I suppose, so we enlarged the ribbon badge until it was four inches across and with many loops. For a year or more we usually wore the colors over the heart with the pin stuck through them. We loved our pin, colors, and rose, in fact everything about Alpha Xi Delta passionately.
