Alma Mater Song
New lyrics for BSU’s alma mater song — which was originally written by Zelma Lucas, Class of 1904, and William Lester Bates, Class of 1892 — were unveiled in May of 2022. Juliana Horton, G’22, wrote:
Our love of community guides us in purpose and thought, well aware, the courage to lead and inspire, the hallmark of ev’ry Bear.
Alma Mater! Alma Mater! Rising to what lies before. Alma Mater, keep Bridgewater close to heart forever more!
Wherever the road takes us onward, a time will arise, now and then, with ever a sense of belonging, we’ll come home to you – again.
For legions of those you have tended, your history vital and strong, for then and today and tomorrow, we join in our loyal song.
