University of Louisiana at Lafayette Poem (Alma Mater Vol. 4: The South)

*University of Louisiana at Lafayette*

Lafayette Welcomes You,
You mayn’t feel it now,
but you shall soon,
So when you are feeling all at sea:
Prepare for the battery.

Festivity: Happily, Boldly,
Creole life resides
Faithfully;
School Spirit,
Love & Yet More Love,
And Lagniappe Week:
You’ll get a little extra

Pagin’ Ragin’ Cajuns.
Bring this lost life home,

With instruments that are sure to bring out the Red,
And carry him into the White:

He’ll not only be brought to,
But with the Cajuns he’ll be taught to,
Seize this new life gave
&
Rage.
