Alma Mater

Lyrics by Louis Nappen, ’90, ‘92


Symbol of our skills and virtues,

Herald of our dignity;

With these praises we salute you,

Monmouth University.


Growing with each generation,

Forming ties that will remain.

Forging true our lives’ foundations

With each goal that we attain.


Soaring from the Jersey Shore,

Upon the wind our wings unfurled.

High above the ocean’s roar,

The blue Hawks rise to meet the world.



The Alma Mater is played everyday at 11:45 a.m. on the University’s Carillion (bells), located in the Plangere Center Tower.


Monmouth University Fight Song

Fight for Dear Old Monmouth

Music and lyrics by Dr. Gilbert Fell, Ph.D., 1997


Fight for dear old Monmouth

Let’s fight and do our best.


On fields of play we’ll triumph,

When we’re put to the test.


The Hawks will go a-soaring,

Victors o’er the rest.


Fight for dear old Monmouth;

We ride the blue wave’s crest.


Ride the blue wave’s crest.
