Fight Songs

  1. Elon Fight Song

    So here’s to dear old Elon
    Faithful and bold.
    Here’s to her banner
    Of maroon and gold.
    And here’s to men and women,
    Who’ve come and gone,
    Singing the victor’s song of old Elon.

  2. The Alma Mater

    Sons of Elon, daughters too,
    Bring their praise and homage true.
    In thy keeping there will be
    Words and deeds to honor thee.
    Hearken to the song they’re singing,
    And the loyalty they’re bringing.
    Alma Mater, they will cherish thee;
    Alma Mater, they will cherish thee.

    Proud, the oak trees on thy hill
    Offer shade and shadow still
    Green the fields around thee lie;
    Blue the Carolina sky.
    Stately rise thy halls of learning,
    Toward their portals we are turning.
    Alma Mater, we will cherish thee;
    Alma Mater, we will cherish thee.

    Elon, ever lead us on
    To a bright and happy dawn;
    Teach us still to love and pray,
    Guide us to a nobler day.
    Joyous music lies before us,
    Memories to swell the chorus.
    Alma Mater, we will cherish thee;
    Alma Mater, we will cherish thee.
