Blue and White Song


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.
