    School Song 

    "To thee dear Adamson, our hearts shall ever grateful be,
    With honor and glory crowned through all your history.
    To thee, dear blue and white,
    We pledge our loyalty.
    We love thee whatever may come, defeat or victory."

     

    Fight Song

    "On you Leopards, On you Leopards,
    Plunge right through that line.
    Run the ball around the Bisons,
    Touchdown sure this time.
    Rah! Rah! Rah!
    On you Leopards, On you Leopards,
    Fight on for your fame.
    Go Leopards, fight and we will win this game!"
