From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hail to Thy Name So Fair is the alma mater at East Carolina University. It first appeared in the 1940-41 East Carolina Teachers College (ECTC)Student Handbook. It was written by Harold A. McDougle ('44) who became a part-time instructor in the Music Department from 1946-47.

The Marching Pirates perform the song during all home football and basketball games. At every home football game, after the National Anthem is sung, the Alma Mater is sung followed by the E.C. Victory song. At the end of football games, the football team walks to the student section to sing the Alma Mater and E.C. Victory song in unison.


Praise to your name so fair,
Dear old East Car'lina,
your joys we'll all share, and your friends we'll ever be.

We pledge our loyalty, and our heart's devotion,
To thee, our Alma Mater,
love and praise.
