UW—Platteville Poem

From Alma Mater Vol. 1: The Midwest. Available Now!

AlmaMater_Midwest HQ


The Exponent that makes Platteville combustible:
Is Pioneers who settle & set off a spark,
In this Exponent there are particles in each article,
Pioneers who see fires of tradition and hark.
75 years ago our tradition got its start,
Miners on campus who created the world’s biggest “M,”
They lit it on fire like the Sigma Burning Heart,
The flames of every Pioneer—from her to him.
Wider than the years in the Fieldhouse gym,
The flames are visible past the lake in all our blue,
This homecoming site will never go dim,
In our vision of college, this was our view.

This is what every college should be:
A burning that ignites
everything college
Could be.
