A song that reminds students, faculty, staff, and alumni that eventide is a time to reflect on
rededicating their loyalty to SCSU through good deeds and love for the school. In 1939, Mr.
Reginald R. Thomasson, former Associate Professor in the Department of Music, wrote the words
Moderately with expression
When shadows steal across the way,
Our love for thee turns night to day
A love that's true as ocean's blue and ever will abide,
We pledge ourselves with loyalty,
Dear Alma Mater, still for thee.
We hear thy call;
we give our all to thee at eventide.
