Day is done, gone the sun, and gone another year,
ready to be entered in the annals.
To you who would bid farewell to Alma Mater,
we say, "Congratulations. You have fought the good fight;
you have run the good race."
To you who would remain, we say, "Keep the faith.
Hold the torch high above your heads, and you, too,
will find victory at the end of another day.
To you we leave a heritage ~ the traditions, the institutions,
and the glories of our school; we leave our place to you,
strive to succeed where we have failed."
