To all of the student body out there, and in here,
Many, many years ago I enrolled at our university. I also became a member of the Pride of Acadiana. At that time, the Band Director, James Square, demanded that all members learn the fight song, all the traditional cheers and the Alma Mater. If he spotted us on campus or around town, he would stop us and have us recite them to him from memory. I believe this was one of my fondest memories of U(s)L.
However, I find myself saddened when OUR school song is being played, and I'm the only one near me singing the words. There is more to the college experience than the pre/post game party. And I know that I'm closer to 40 than I am to 18, but I still have pride in my school and a love for those things mentioned in the song.
Do yourself some good. Make the school proud. Learn the words to the Alma Mater of THE University of Louisiana!
