CLU Traditions

The CLU Alma Mater

Lyrics written by Dr. Orville Dahl and music by Rossini/Ramsey

Oh, summon your sons and daughters,
Your banners and flags unfold,
Call them to Alma Mater,
The violet and the gold.

California Lutheran,
College of our dreams,
Upon whose crested summits
Sunbeams dance and gleam.

Oh, summon your sons and daughters,
The 'circling hills enfold,
Near deep Pacific waters,
The violet and the gold.
Your love of freedom cherish,
Your love of truth prevail,
Your love of Christus merit,
Alma Mater, Hail! All Hail! All Hail!

The CLU Fight Song

Lyrics written by Zimmerman/Elmer Ramsey

Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
On to victory show the C-L-U might!
Dig in and take that ball right down the field again,
send the foe into fright!
We're here right behind you and our mind's made up to win!
So, go! go! go! go!
Go and get the score and our spirits will soar!

Let's count down!
10, 9, 8, cast off!
7, 6, 5, get set!
4, 3, 2, blast off!
1, Go!
and we are off to win the vict'ry today!
