Rochester in Monroe County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Full many fair and famous streams beneath the sun there be,
But more to us than any seems our own dear Genesee.
We love her banks and stately falls, for to our minds they bring
Our dear old Alma Mater's halls, where sweetest memories cling.
As flows the river gathering force along her steadfast way,
May we along life's devious course grow stronger day by day:
And may our hearts where'er we roam forever loyal be
To our beloved college home beside the Genesee.
Song by Thomas Thackeray Swinburne
Class of 1892, University of Rochester
