From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Hail to Old OSU" is the fight song for Oregon State University. It was written by Harold L. Wilkins in 1914 and is played mainly at sporting events like football and basketball games. The lyrics have been slightly altered since being written "to conform to a changing culture".[1] (note, originally Hail to old OSC, when it was Oregon State College)


Here we come with a toast and song for the college up on the hill.
We love her shady slopes and trees its mem'ries cheer and thrill
But fondest thoughts when the years have run,
Will be of teams and vict'ries won,
Each man (one) a loyal son
Hail! to old OSU
OSU our hats are off to you
Beavers, Beavers, fighters through and through,
We'll cheer for every man, (or, “We’ll cheer throughout the land,”)
We'll root for every stand, (or, “We’ll root for every plan,”)
That's made for old OSU.
Watch our team go tearing down the field,
Men (those) of iron their strength will never yield,
Hail, hail, hail, hail,
Hail to old OSU.
