Pacific Hail! & The Tiger Fight Song

Pacific Hail!

Pacific Alma Mater - Click here to listen to a rendition of Pacific Hail!
Words & music by Lois Warner Winston COP '23, '58

From o'er the rugged mountains standing high;
From out the broad low valleys, 'neath the sky;
Our alma mater calls, We cannot fail,
Our voices blend in praise, Pacific Hail! Pacific Hail!

Long may her flaming torch give out its light;
Long may her spirit guide us in the right;
To her we pledge our hearts, We dare not fail;
To her we raise our song,
Pacific Hail! Pacific Hail!

Pacific Hail! as performed at the 2011 Commencement Ceremony.

The Tiger Fight Song

The fight song was written in 1922 by Bob Couchman '22 and composed by Russ Bodley '23. The original title of the fight song we know today was "Hungry Tigers".

Come on you hungry tigers - fight - fight - fight
Let's win the game you tigers - fight - fight - fight
See the tigers breaking through, After goals, we'll get them too

Fighting for UOP, We're after victory
So hail, oh hail the orange and the black
See those banners gleam
We'll shout for fame, Cause we'll win the game!!
We're the fighting tiger
We're the fighting tiger
We're the fighting tiger team!!
