Alma Mater and Fight Song

Though most often sung in formal, respectful environments, the alma mater is important to know to show pride in your University.

Kennesaw, Dear Kennesaw
Kennesaw, dear Kennesaw,
Nestled in the Georgia pines,
What a special place you hold,
Treasured in this heart of mine.
For the candles you set burning,
Lighting paths of love and learning,
For the gifts you have given me,
Kennesaw, I will cherish thee.

Kennesaw, dear Kennesaw,
Fairest of the Southland’s fame,
Sons and daughters gathered here,
Stand to praise thy lovely name.
For the friendships that were made here,
For the dreams we dared to dream here,
Kennesaw, we will cherish thee,
Kennesaw, we will cherish thee.

Lyrics by Cynthia Parks (1982)

Learn it! Know it! Sing it in your sleep. No better way to show your KSU Pride that belt out the fight song at the next game or event.

KSU Fight Song

We are the owls
And we bring the fight,
All through the South-land,
All know our might!
From the moun-tain
We bring spi-rit, heart, and vic-to-ry!
LET’S GO OWLS!
Our men and wom-en bring ho-nor and fame,
Strong in the class-room,
Strong in the game.
From the moun-tain
We bring spi-rit,
Kennesaw! It’s on to vic-to-ry!
GO OWLS!
FIGHT OWLS!
K-S-U! K-S-U!
We are the owls and
we bring the fight,
All through the South-land
All know our might.
From the moun-tain
We bring spi-rit,
Kennesaw! It’s on to vic-to-ry!
