Alma Mater
Calhoun-Clemson, Alma Mater,
Thee do we praise;
For thy noble truth and counsel
All through the days.
Let us all from thee inherit
Strength for deeds of truth and merit
May thy standards ever lofty
Guide us always.

Calhoun-Clemson, may thy future
Bright always be;
May thy noble halls of learning
Keep the lamps of truth e'er burning
That the youth for knowledge yearning
May turn to thee.

- George Aull '39
