Alma Mater
"Coastal Carolina"

We come to you to lead our search,
and learn to reach beyond ourselves-
below the earth, beyond the stars-
to form our dreams for better years.

Here, green and bronze in nature; light-
sweet pine forests that surround us,
ocean waters that sustain us-
reflect your standards that prepare us.

May we return in thought and care
To share your promise of enrichment,
and celebrate and sing our praise
for Coastal Carolina.

Bennie Lee Sinclair

The Coastal Carolina University Alma Mater was written in 1994 by Bennie Lee Sinclair, Poet Laureate of South Carolina, to commemorate the first year of the institution's status as a university.

The original score for the Alma Mater was written by William R. Hamilton, Coastal Carolina University music professor.

Music to the Alma Mater was performed by the Coastal Carolina University Concert Choir under the direction of Anne Denbow-Gilbert and accompanied by Gary Stegall.
