Beyond the Lake’s blue water,
Stands our Alma Mater
Glorious to view the red and white
Love and honor, praise to thee.
We will sing of faith and loyalty
Trust and courage guide thy days ahead,
And we’ll ne’er forget the Lancer,
Strive to win thee fame.
Hail to thee our Alma Mater
Ever onward guard thy name.
