Choir singing

Alma Mater


Proudly we sing of college halls, gracing a hilltop high.
Proudly our tower and ivied walls point to an azure sky.
And may that spirit long remain, bringing distinction true.
Noble pride in our Hillsdale’s name endures ’neath the white and blue.

Here we for greater knowledge strive, here lasting friends acquire.
Here may we keep our dreams alive, as we to heights aspire.
Here may our youth a challenge meet, building our hopes anew.
Faith in life becomes complete ’neath banners of white and blue.

Words and melody by Bess Hagaman Tefft, Class of 1937
