Ask Iggy Spring 2012

Dear Iggy,
Was Marquette Hall the first building constructed on campus?
—Alumnus

Though construction of Marquette Hall and the Burke Memorial Seismographic Laboratory were both begun in 1910, the seismographic observatory was the first permanent building on campus and was initially located behind Marquette Hall. When Bobet Hall was constructed, it was dismantled and moved to its present location between Marquette Hall and Holy Name of Jesus Church.

Dear Iggy,
Does Loyola University New Orleans have a fight song?
—Alumnus

Yes, but several versions exist. The most popular version of the “Loyola Fight Song” was composed by the Rev. Charles C. Chapman, S.J., Raymond McNamara, and Milo B. Williams, J.D. ’23. The original chorus lyrics were:

Fight! Fight! Fight! You men of the South!
We hail your courage born of old,
Fight! Fight! Fight! You men of the South!
Loyola’s honor to uphold;
You men who fight and grin, and squarely play the game,
We know that you go in, a victory to claim;
So, Fight! Fight! Fight! You men of the South!
For the Old Maroon and Gold.
Make a Gold. RAH! toast! Make a boast! to Loyola’s warriors bold!
Cheer again! For the men! Who defend Maroon and Gold!
So cheer them right, with all your might! RAH! RAH! RAH! RAH!

The lyrics were later changed to be more inclusive of men and women:

Fight! Fight! Fight! Maroon and Gold!
We hail your courage born of old,
Fight! Fight! Fight! Maroon and Gold!
Loyola’s honor to uphold;
The Pack who fight to win, and squarely play the game,
We know that you go in, a victory to claim;
So, Fight! Fight! Fight! Maroon and Gold!
For the Alma Mater Bold.
Make a toast, make a boast, to Loyola’s warriors bold!
Cheer again! For the Pack, who defend the Maroon and Gold!
So cheer them right, with all your might! RAH! RAH! RAH! RAH!
