Bringing back the George Fox Alma Mater
George Fox University is reviving its alma mater (school song). Composed in 1904, the alma mater was sung after games through at least the 1960s and likely disappeared with the elimination of the football program in 1969.
But now it’s back in a new form. The sped-up “fight song” version is arranged by Todd Zimbelman, former director of athletic bands at University of Oregon. Two text changes were to the original second verse: “Bruins” replaces “comrades” and “George Fox” replaces “P.C.” (an abbreviation of the then-Pacific College name).
George Fox Alma Mater
Bruins come and
Raise your voices
Let us praise
Our college dear
While with her
Your heart rejoices
Spread her glory
Far and near
Then a rousing cheer
We'll give her
'Tis the least that we can do
We'll love forever
Her old gold and navy blue
