For many years now, the various divisions of our armed forces have inhabited their campus headquarters in
North Hall. Students interested in the military, as a part-time supplement to their income or as a full career, can
stop in and talk with the representatives. Many students participate in the campus unit of the Reserve Officers
Training Corp (ROTC).
rThe Yellow and Blue
(Editor's note-Every academic institution has a "school song," and like it or
not, "The Yellow and Blue" is ours. Nobody can really figure out the words
to our alma mater (though the melody is nice enough), but everybody sings
them during big sports events, come hell or high water. You'd better
remember the words to the first verse now, or forever limit yourself to the
bellowy "Haaallillil" near the song's end.)
Sing to the colors that float in the light;
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
Yellow the stars as they ride through the night
And reel in a rollicking crew;
Yellow the field where ripens the grain
And yellow the moon on the harvest wain: -Hail!
Hail to the colors that float in the light
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
