Alma Mater

Junius W. Stevens, Class of 1895


Where the vale of Onondaga
Meets the eastern sky
Proudly stands our Alma Mater
On her hilltop high.
Flag we love! Orange! Float for aye-
Old Syracuse, o'er thee,
Loyal be thy sons and daughters
To thy memory.

Down The Field (1914)

Ralph Murphy, Class of 1916, words
C. Harold Lewis, Class of 1915, music


Out upon the gridiron stand old Syracuse, 
Warriors clad in orange and in blue,
Fighting for the fame of Alma Mater. 
Soon those Crouse chimes will be ringing,
Soon you'll hear those fellows singing. 
Onondaga's braves are out to win today,
The sons of Syracuse are ready for the fray, 
The line holds like a wall and now the Orange has the ball,
So ready for that old long yell. Rah! Rah! Rah!

Down, Down the field goes old Syracuse, 
Just see those backs hit the line and go thro';
Down, down the field they go marching, 
Fighting for the Orange staunch and true.
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Vict'y's in sight for old Syr-a-cuse, 
Each loyal son knows she ne'er more will lose,
For we'll fight, yes, we'll fight, and with all our might
For the glory of old Syracuse.
