ALMA MATER
Graduates and Guests
Alma Mate, old Duquesne, Guide and friend of our youthful days,
We, thy sons and daughters all, our loyal voices raise.
The hours we spent at thy Mother-knee, and drank of wisdom's store,
Shall e'er in memr'y treasured be, Tho' we roam the whole world o'er.
Then forward eve, dear Alma Mater! O'er our hearts unrivaled reign.
Onward eve, old Alma Mater! All hail to thee, Duquesne!
