*Iowa State University*

There are Cyclones all over this state,
Whirlwinds of creation and a storm of elation—
Rising as sons
For I,
Sons
For S,
Sons
For what
Is
Iowa State.

Victors of medicine
Engineers of industrial science
Inventors of the first digital computer
Students of the Iowa State Daily
Heroes of home and community
Entertainers of this great festival
All under the same haven

Celebrating our founders since 1922
with showcases, fundraisers, exhibits…
Concluding with a parade drift of Cardinal and Gold…
No Iowa City wears their colors like we do.
The Hilton Coliseum is hit with Cardinal and Gold,
In the center is a Cardinal “I”—overlapped by a Gold “State,”
“Iowa State” on one end, Cyclones on the other and throughout—
Packing the air with Cardinal and Gold.
Jack Trice Stadium is hit with Cardinal and Gold,
In the center is a Cardinal “I”—overlapped by a Gold “State,”
“Iowa State” on one end, Cyclones on the other and throughout—
Packing the stands with Cardinal and Gold.
This entire campus is hit with Cardinal and Gold,
From one end of Iowa state, to the other and throughout—
This is the epicenter of the Cyclone experience—
With the unending flood of Cardinal and Gold.

Sound the alarm as these Cyclones
Take Ames
To continue our tradition of bettering

Our College. Our Campus. Our State.
Rising
For what is forever
Iowa State.
