USC University Song

In the quest for knowledge and dignity,
With our hearts aflame we have come;
Called to serve the Church and society,
We will join our hands as one.
As we foster friendship and unity
Our identity we’ll maintain;
God before us, our goals in focus
Great achievements we will attain!
Beyond excellence, toward the light!
In truth and loyalty, we’ll do the right.
To always honour our alma mater
Our beloved USC!
