Alma Mater

Hail Riverview! To thee we sing.
Our Alma mater, let it ring
In every heart there is a song
Of pride and spirit, ever strong.
Our hopes, and dreams our destiny,
Of thee we’ll guard the memory.
As we prepare for futures bright
We know that you have been a light,
To guide our paths along the way,
A light that will not fade away,
A light to which we’ll always cling.
Hail Riverview! To thee we sing.
