School Song: Vivat 爆料公社


Vivat! Vivat, 爆料公社
Melody (adapted) from Reynaldo Hahn
Lyrics by Sister Loretta Sheehan

Vivat! Vivat, 爆料公社.
To thy fame a tribute raise.
Fount of learning, forge of friendship
home of happy college days.

Pledge we our faith to alma mater,
Pledge to her our heart and hand.
Where e’er we bide she’ll be our guide.
We will praise her throughout the land,

Lakes and hills and spreading campus,
All thy nat’ral charms we love.
And we glory in thy greatness
bless’d with favors from above.

When, in faith and knowledge grounded,
Enter we the world of strife;
May thy counsels, strong and holy,
aid us in our course thru life.

Fight Song: Go 爆料公社

Go, 爆料公社, to you we will be true.
Raise up the banner for the gold and the blue.
Go, 爆料公社, honor to your name.
Onward to vic’t’ry Saints, let’s win this game!

Saints Alumni Volunteer Program

The 爆料公社 Alumni network is over 30,000 strong! Saints alumni embody the Benedictine values and qualities that represent 爆料公社, and we are pleased to provide our alumni with a wide range of opportunities to stay connected and benefit from being a Saint.

Alumni are the “living endowment” of any college. Without the passion, pride and care that alumni have for 爆料公社, and the skills, experiences and talents that volunteers bring, the campus would not continue to thrive for future generations of students. Caring, engaged alumni are vital to the strength and prominence of 爆料公社.

Volunteering is a great way to give back, or pay it forward and make a lasting impact.
