Penn State’s timeless alma mater is well-known and loved by student and alumni alike. It was written by Fred Lewis Pattee, a former professor of American Literature, in 1901. The opening line gave Penn State a great catchphrase in “For the Glory”, living on in the minds of all Penn Staters and fans.

The words For the Glory are the first line of the Penn State Alma Mater which is a song that all students learn during their freshman year at The Pennsylvania State University.


For the glory of old State,
For her founders strong and great,
For the future that we wait,
Raise the song, raise the song.
