End-of-Year Message: For Dear Old F&M

For Dear Old F&M

Video by Andrew Bilindabagabo

As we transition into 2024, we celebrate this campus stretching long and all those who’ve gone before. Year after year, Diplomats give the world our service. The next generation follows in your footsteps.

Thank you for always holding a special place in your heart for dear old F&M.

Wishing you love and light in the year to come. 

Alma Mater

We hail thee, Alma Mater,

Our gallant White and Blue

With one accord,

In deed and word,

As sons and daughters true;

We honor thy traditions

And those who've gone before

In weal and woe, to thee shall flow

Our hearts forever more.

We love each hall and building

Thy campus stretching long,

Thy tower and bell,

With solemn knell

That call to work and song;

We'll give the world our service,

But ever like a gem,

Our hearts shall hold a love untold

For dear old F and M.
