Alma Mater

Alma Mater

Alma, our Alma Mater, 
The home of Mountaineers
Sing we of thy honor
Everlasting through the years
Alma, our Alma Mater,
We pledge in song to you
Hail, all hail! Our Alma Mater,
West Virginia U.
– Composed by Alumnus Louis D. Corson, ‘37

Traditionally, the Alma Mater is sung prior to each home Mountaineer football game and during commencement ceremonies. You can listen to the Alma Mater below, performed by "The Pride of West Virginia" Mountaineer Marching Band as you would hear it during their famous pregame show as well as a vocal rendition, which the Pride sings on Law School Hill before they march down to Milan Puskar Stadium.
