FIRST TO LAST
II II
To The Freshmen
' 1 21-'_ 22--
You are here with expectations, pep and a purpose, a part of
a great institution. The greatness of a university is measured in
terms of the spirit, the purpose and the accomplishments of its
students, and the eminence that FLORIDA may attain must be
measured in these same terms. You form a complete class, and
we must have your hearty co-operation in order to make this
college year the greatest in the history of our university. Enter
heartily into all college activities; get the old "Gator Spirit" and
FLORIDA will win out in everything.
FLORIDA TRADITIONS:
It has been a custom here for years for the Freshmen, while
on the campus, to wear green caps bearing an orange "F" above
the visor. This cap serves a double purpose-it helps the upper
classmen to get acquainted with the Freshmen and it enables the
latter to recognize and get acquainted with each other. There is
nothing compulsory about the wearing of these caps-it is a point
of honor.
There is a spirit of fellowship between instructors and students
and among the students themselves here at FLORIDA that is a
matter of pride with us all-another of our traditions. Fellows,
speak to every man you meet. Get acquainted, not only with the
men who will be our associates throughout the next four years,
but also with the men who will teach you.
Every school that pretends to any distinction at all has its
songs and yells; FLORIDA has hers, and fellows, they're good
ones. Here they are. How long has it taken YOU to learn them?
HAIL FLORIDA
FLORIDA'S men are marching on again to victory,
The Orange and Blue, unfurled above our heads will wave,
For we'll help our boys along with our cheers and with our songs,
And we'll stick by every man of our evenn braves."
And at last when the victory is over,
When the team has proven loyal, staunch and true,
We'll hear old Georgia mourn to their good old cracker home,
Wondering how the 'Gators slipped them something new.
Chorus:
Hail, we'll all hail FLORIDA,
Cheer her and back her boys,
Through every single play.
(Rah-Rah-Rah!)
Cheer boys for victory,
And let the Locomotives tell
For the team of sweat and brawn
By those yells will "Carry On."
And old Georgia'll think she stepped from earth to Hell.
THE ORANGE AND BLUE
Cheer for the Orange and Blue,
Waving forever, pride of old FLORIDA,
May she droop never.
We'll sing a song for that flag today,
Cheer for the team at play,
On to the goal we'll fight our way,
For FLORIDA.
