ASU’s original Fight Song was adapted by Paul Peck, a music instructor, and adopted in 1950 when the institution was known as San Angelo College. Unlike the lyrics of ASU’s Alma Mater, which have changed five times over the years, the Angelo State Fight Song has remained much the same except for replacing “San Angelo” with “ASU” in 1970 after the institution became a four-year, state-supported institution.
You’ve got to do your best to stand the test
For old ASU
Hang your name in halls of fame
For all the world to view.
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Raise her banners high in the sky
Praise her brave ones as they go by,
Hail Alma Mater Hail,
Blue and Gold of ASU.
