 East Carolina University Alma Mater

The ECU Alma Mater is "Hail to Thy Name So Fair". It first appeared in the 1940-41 ECTC Student Handbook where it was attributed to a student by the name of Harold A. McDougle ('44). McDougle later became a part-time instructor in the Music Department at ECTC (1946-47) and a music teacher at Greenville High School (1947-48).

East Carolina University Alma Mater 

Praise to your name so fair,
Dear old East Car'lina,
your joys we'll all share, and your friends we'll ever be.

We pledge our loyalty, and our heart's devotion,
To thee, our Alma Mater,
love and praise.
