Gentle slopes and lofty tower radiant in the sun,
Arching bridge and shaded valley all our hearts are won.
Withrow’s beauty, Withrow’s splendor fill our hearts with pride,
Love for you our Alma Mater ever will abide.
Friendships made in search of knowledge cherished bonds and true,
Memories of golden hours hold us close to you.
As we venture from your portals aims held ever high,
We’ll look back to glimpse once more the tower ‘gainst the sky.
