school song  

(Verse)
Let's stand and cheer, we'll show no fear. Our power and might is ever near.
Our Falcon pride, we will not hide as we bring victory to our side.
We'll do our best to stand the test. Until we win we'll never rest.

Come on all you Falcons, Fight! Fight! Fight! With all your might. (2nd time only: Go OA-BCIG)

Yell for the purple, yell for the silver, yell for the mighty black.
Our team is ready, ready to attack.
Cheer for the Falcons!
Cheer for the Falcons!
Falcons! Fight! Fight! Fight!
(Repeat Verse)
