The dark hue of the violet The snow white lily's bloom Are emblems of the virtues rare; That seal all failures' doom; That give us courage ever To dare to do the right: For Alma Mater dear they stand, All hail the Blue and White. O sing a song of love and praise From loyal hearts and pure, For her our Alma Mater dear And for her ideals true; For over a hundred years she's triumphed, As upward in her flight She's climbed to a beacon light- Passing onward greater opportunity Her banner Blue and White. Words and Music by William Augustine Perry, Class of 1902
