 School Songs

 Indiana, Our Indiana
Words by Russell P. Harker, Melody taken from "The Viking March", by Karl L. King

Indiana's most recognized fight song, "Indiana, Our Indiana," was first performed by the IU Band in November, 1912 at a football game against Northwestern. The song has since been played at every Indiana football and basketball game.

Indiana, Our Indiana
Indiana, we're all for you
We will fight for
the Cream & Crimson,
For the glory of Old IU
Never daunted, we cannot falter
In the battle, we're tried and true
Indiana, Our Indiana
Indiana, we're all for you!

 

Hail to Old IU
Words by J.T. Giles

Indiana's official Alma Mater song, "Hail to Old IU" was first performed on March 10, 1893 in Indianapolis. J.T. Giles, who organized the IU glee club wrote the words to a Scottish song in order to give the Hoosiers a school song for a performance at a state contest. The song has been a mainstay at Indiana events since that day.

Come and join in song together,
Shout with might and main;
Our beloved Alma Mater,
Sound her praise again.
Gloriana Frangipana, E'er to her be true.
She's the pride of Indiana,
Hail to Old IU!
