Be Forever Blue.

LCU has a rich heritage comprised of countless alumni, staff, faculty, and visionaries who pioneered the way for our university. To be "Forever Blue" is to recognize and honor that amazing heritage, along with all the traditions that commemorate it.

Traditions

  • Master Follies - One of our longest running traditions is Master Follies. Held once a year, Follies brings together a number of groups and clubs in a variety performance unlike any other. Now held in the McDonald Moody Auditorium, Master Follies occurs during Homecoming weekend, typically in February.
  • Chapel - The first chapel began the first week of school and has continued since. Often varied in its programming, chapel offers students an opportunity to meet together for worship.  Chapel takes place in the McDonald-Moody auditorium every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 10:00 a.m.
  • "Alma Mater" - Written by Yvonne "Mama" Hinds and Dr. B. Wayne Hinds, "The LCU Alma Mater" is an ode to the school's earliest roots, values, and mission.
  • "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" - This hymn of blessing is well known among LCU students and alumni. The song, which features a seven-fold Amen, is traditionally sung at the end of graduation ceremonies, special events, and other alumni gathers as a blessing upon the school and the many members of the LCU community.

Alma Mater

Written by Dr. B Wayne Hinds and his wife, Yvonne, our Alma Mater has been sung by alumni and students across every decade of our school's history. Here are the lyrics, preserved in tradition, as they were written in 1957:

Hail to our own Lubbock Christian,
Modern Pioneers!
May his blessing rest upon you
Always through the years.
Ties of friendship,
Love unbounded,
Colors white and blue
O, Beloved Lubbock Christian,
We'll be true to you.

Hail to thee, our alma mater!
Lubbock Christian reigns,
Born to give the light of knowledge
Set on rolling plains.
Learning character, citizenship
With Christianity,
O, beloved Lubbock Christian,
We'll remember thee.

Lyrics by Yvonne "Mama" Hinds
