"When all our student days are done and we from school must go,
Still we will honor, love and sing thy praises o’er and o’er,
We’ll live for thee, we’ll strive for thee, we’ll all thy ways adore;
We’ll long for thee and toil until we reach the Golden Shore,
We’ll long for thee and toil until we reach the Golden Shore."


–Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Hymn (Verse 3)
