ALMA M ATER
VOICES HYMN THY VALIANT PRAISES,
HEARTS THY HALLS ENSHRINE:
MAY OUR LOYALTY UNCEASING
AMHERST, E'ER BE THINE.
'NEATH YOUR TOVUERS FACING NORTHW'ARD
WE SHALL ALWAYS BEg
EVER FAITHFUL, ALMA MATER,
TO THY MEMORY.
WHEN WE LEAVE THY HALLS OF LEARNING,
PATHS OF LIFE TO STRAYQ
MAY YOUR GUIDANCE NEVER ENDING
LIGHT US ON OUR WAY.
History of the Alma Mater:-
As a result of a campaign conducted last year by the Student Council, the verses by Glenn
llurray of the Class of 1939, printed above, were adopted for our school Alma Mater. Since then,
in the absence of original music, we have sung them to the music of the Cornell Alma Mater.
The adoption of the words for an Alma Llater is truly one of the highlights of Amherst's first
ten years. It will remain for future classes to provide appropriate music for these fine words . . .
