Today is your day.
You’re off to Binghamton!
You’re off and away!
There are BUC$ in your pocket
A smile on your face
President Stenger is here
To greet you with his gentle embrace
Oh the places you’ll go!
There’s no time to stall!
Your twin xl bedspread is arranged
A collage of your best friends rests on your wall
Jazzman’s will assist coffee needs
And the Nature Preserve is perfect for relaxing hikes
Last night you posted a screenshot of your schedule on Facebook
And it already has two likes
Oh, all the clubs you’ll join
There certainly are all sorts
From Humans vs. Zombies to the Glee Club
You’ll do great, as long as you’re not big on NCAA sports
The nightlife is quite exciting
So many bars and frats
Maybe you’ve heard some things about Greek Life
We don’t need to get into that.
Oh, all the people you’ll meet!
You’ll surely make some terrific friends
As for the people you bonded with at orientation
You’ll probably never see them again
And sometimes things won’t go perfectly
You may pass/fail a GenEd or two
And you may get rejected with your friend’s sister’s ID
Trust me, these things will most certainly happen to you
But life is funny that way
Not every Sodexo burger you’re served will be fresh
But you’re a member of the Binghamton family now
When it comes to SUNY, you’re the best.
You can overcome any challenge
There’s no mountain you can’t view
The next four years will be good ones
Four years that are all about you.
be your name Seth or Lauren or Rachel
or Mike or Rachel or Seth,
You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your world is waiting.
So … get on your way!
