CSU is where Engaged Learning happens,
For two Vikings, this is where it began:
In the classroom of Cleveland, Ohio,
The learning environment where Vikings grow.
These two Vikings took real-world experience
To advance their careers and push one another
To experience a love & a love for the city,
And shove into a deep as great as the Erie.
They danced in the East Fourth Street District,
Joined in restaurants on West 6th and West 9th,
They danced more at Barflyy & Anatomy,
These downtown lights join the Academy—
In a ride of art, museums, and love,
Under the lights of Progressive—
Is where they fell in love.
On this four-year anniversary, right before graduation,
In the stands on college night: there’s a new celebration…
On the big screen during the 7th inning stretch,
He proposed, she accepted, cheers rang from the decks!
Like their future careers, these Vikings’ love paid,
It was in CSU’s class where they first were engaged.
