Alma Mater

Alma Mater

In 1954, “CBU We'll Love You,” composed by Dr. S.E. Smith, was adopted as the official alma mater for the school.

The title of the song was later changed to

CBU We'll Love You

to reflect the school's name change to California Baptist University.

It is traditional to sing the alma mater at commencement ceremonies and any gathering of alumni and students (when appropriate).
