Alma Mater
In the Shadow of the mountains,
Under the Skies of blue,
Stands our dear old Alma Mater,
Glorious to View,
Sounds the chorus, speed it onward;
Thee we'll never fail!
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater -
Hail to thee, all hail!

In thy halls we formed our friendships,
Dear old college home;
And to thee we pledge our hearts,
Wherever we may roam,
Sound the chorus, speed it onward;
Thee we'll never fail!
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater -
Hail to thee, all hail!
