Lyrics

For all the time
We spent with you
And all the know-ledge
We did pursue.

The hours spent
Within your walls,
The friendships forged
Inside these halls.

J. Sargeant Reynolds
Our alma mater
We’ve found community
In this college
But as we leave you
And travel farther
We keep you in our hearts
Our alma mater.

We came, inspired
To follow through
You challenged us,
We needed you.

You’ve been the bridge
From where we were
To where we’re headed
To build our fu-u-ture

J. Sargeant Reynolds
Our alma mater
We’ve found community
In this college
But as we leave you
And travel farther
We keep you in our hearts
Our alma mater.
