Return to About the University 

Alma Mater Xavier

Xavier is our family tree,
Rooted in one history.
Nurtured by our legacy,
Xavier’s humble pedigree
Branches out to touch the same
God we call by many names,
And aglow in love aflame,
Bear the fruit of Xavier’s fame.

Fame that no one can impeach
Growing to extend our reach,
Planting fertile seeds in each
Soul and mind we serve and teach.
One community we stand,
Building dreams and hopes with hands
Stretching out across the land
For each woman, child and man.

Composed by Dr. Thomas Merrill and Dr. Tyrone Williams
in celebration of Xavier University’s 175th anniversary.
