College Anthem

Fruits of virtue and knowledge
Here we gather, peace and power
Symbolished in yonder banner
Floating o'er St. Joseph's tower
White and blue its mystic colors
Harmonizing strong and clear
Stolen from the distant mountains
From the wild waves breaking near
Harmonizing strong and clear
White and Blue our mystic colors
Till the mountains disappear
