Song of Bowdoin College. Original words by K.C.M. Sills (Class of 1901). New words by Anthony Antolini (Class of 1963). It is an integral part of Bowdoin's rich tradition, and every Bowdoin alumnus worth his salt knows the words by heart. It is always the last piece to be sung by the Bowdoin Chamber Choir at concerts.

Raise Songs to Bowdoin

Raise songs to Bowdoin, praise her fame,
And sound abroad her glorious name;
To Bowdoin, Bowdoin lift your song,
And may the music echo long
O'er whisp'ring pines and campus fair
With sturdy might filling the air.

Bowdoin, from birth, our nurturer and friend,
To thee we pledge our love again, again.

While now amid thy halls we stay,
And breathe thy spirit day by day,
O may we thus full worthy be
To march in that proud company
Of poets, leaders and each one
Who brings thee fame by deeds well done.

Bowdoin, from birth, our nurturer and friend,
To thee we pledge our love again, again.
