“Go Pride!” — Widener Fight Songs Old and New

September 2, 2010

A new Widener fight song, “Hear the Roar!” debuted last week at convocation when the freshman class performed the first two verses.  Dr. Cedric L. Adderley, professor of music and assistant vice president for academic affairs at Claflin University in Orangeburg, South Carolina,  composed the song.   Adderley served as an American Council of Education (ACE) fellow on Widener’s campus in 2008-2009.

This video from Aug. 27 convocation below includes lyrics scrolling across the screen, or you can print them out and read more about the song on the Widener web site.

As for the old songs, PMC alumnus Bill Speer ’72, author of  From Broomsticks to Battlefields: After the Battle, The Story of Henry Clay Robinett in the Civil War, has posted lyrics from PMC alma maters past on his blog.
