From Alma Mater Vol. 2: The Northeast
Available Now for only 99 cents!
We have graduated to the next level,
A stage beveled for the secondary,
Challenge Convention as a competitive rebel,
LEEP into the world and out the ordinary.
Reform high schools with collaborative gifts,
Rise above the grounds of the sedentary,
When Clarkies LEEP, the impact lifts
The world itself to creative cliffs.
Passion drives the force in Jonas Clark Hall,
And how it scatters—on the Campus Green,
It’s as driven as the first snowfall,
Throughout this town—the passion’s seen.
Found at Spree Day when Clarkies jubilate,
Enjoying time off with passionate glee,
Passion drives the world, Clarkies can relate,
As conductors of world movements: Clarkies operate.
Stepping up for Daybreak in the yearly Stair-A-Thon,
Our service, like Spree Day, is an ill-kept secret,
At the Red Square we fill up the polygon,
A community giving hope—for those who seek it.
Like a broke vagabond, we are hungry for change,
We don’t wait for change, we decide to be it,
Challenging Convention with ideas that exchange
In return for a world that is fixed to rearrange.
