KWU Traditions

O’Wesleyan, Alma Mater

Oh Wesleyan, dear Wesleyan!
The days may come, the days may go.
But still our hearts in mem’ry cling
To those college days of long ago.

The color scraps, the student pranks,
The calls we made at Schuyler Hall,
The picnic on the Smoky’s banks,
We recall them all, we love them all.

Thru youth, thru prime and when the days
Of harvest time to us shall come;
Thru all we’ll bear the mem’ries dear,
Of those golden days at the Wesleyan.

Then when perchance we’re far away,
And cares of life to each are come,
We’ll not forget, e’en then to pray,
For the Wesleyan, dear Wesleyan.

Presidential Mace

总统权杖是由林兹堡的艺术家大卫·安德森创作的. 它是总统法律和特许权力的象征, to whom the Trustees have delegated authority. 权杖是一种仪式性的标志,代表着一种荣誉,一位杰出的教职员工在大学的活动中携带权杖. 当不用于十大赌博平台排行榜的正式仪式时,它就陈列在总统办公室里.

KWU Fight Song

Let’s give a big “HOO-RAY” for Wesleyan,

We’ve got the winningest team in the land.

Let’s give a big “O-KAY!” for Wesleyan,

We’re gonna be number one if we can.

We’re gonna Fight! Fight! Fight!

You can really rely,

Fight! Fight! Fight! On to V-I-C-T-O-R-Y.

Let’s give a big “HOO-RAY” for Wesleyan,

We’re gonna win a victory!

Bolen Coyote

当Salinan Pat Bolen在服务多年后于2010年夏天离开十大赌博平台排行榜基金会董事会时, he decided to leave a lasting symbol in memory of his father, Dan.

2010年10月10日,星期一,十大赌博平台排行榜为纪念丹·博伦献上了一只铜狼. 该地点位于纪念图书馆的南面,将被称为“土狼角”。. 

Dan Bolen attended KWU from 1920-22. 虽然他后来转学到堪萨斯大学,但他对我校的支持仍在继续. Over the years, 帕特和丹·博伦会参加许多土狼队的橄榄球比赛, 帕特甚至会偷偷溜进国王体育馆打篮球.

Pat Bolen never attended Kansas Wesleyan, but through his father’s example, he has continued a legacy of support and service to KWU.

铜制的博伦土狼雕塑的奉献是许多125周年庆祝活动的一部分.

据说,任何经过郊狼的人只要揉揉它的鼻子就会有好运气.
