FAU Alma Mater

With the Gulf stream breezes blowing

The search for truth goes on.

Seeking, learning, sharing knowledge.

Finding the meaning of the past that is gone.

Where nature beams with pleasant weather.

We strive to learn to work together.

 Florida Atlantic, we praise and hail thy name.


Dreaming, daring and succeeding

Bold and wise and strong.

Always learning, always leading

Knowing there’s a place where we all belong.

From so many different nations

We vow to future generations

Florida Atlantic, we Owls will make you proud.
