The CIT Hymn

The CIT Hymn embodies the noble spirit and fine traditions of CIT. Inspired by the official hymn of the Purdue University of Indiana, USA, Engr. Leon Magbanua, then student and Editor of the official student publication The Technician, composed the Maroon and Gold. Incidentally, one of the moving spirits behind the institution, Engr. Jose A. Cavan, is an alumnus of Purdue. Mr. Floro Abadia, then Bandmaster of CIT, arranged the hymn into a choir rendition.

The hymn was first published in the first issue of the Residuum in 1948 and first sung on the first graduation exercise of the same year.

At about the 60th anniversary celebration of CIT, the composition was enriched by the musical insights of Dr. Nicolas L. Escario, Jr. weaving unto the hymn the depth and breadth of tradition, a native Filipino aura and a touch of the contemporary times.

As a symbol of student loyalty and belongingness, the CIT Hymn is sung by members of the CIT family with respect expressive of profound esteem to and high veneration of the ideals that the institution represents.


I
All hail, maroon and gold
Thy colors unfold
O’er loyal Technologians
Whose hearts are strong and bold

II
All hail, maroon and gold
On breezes ye sail
Thy sight we love
All hail, all hail!

III
All hail, maroon and gold
To thee we shall cling
Through all the years and ages
Thy praises we will sing

IV
All hail, maroon and gold
Thy Strength ne’er shall fail
For thee we’ll die
All hail, all hail!

For thee we’ll die
All hail, all hail!
