Bluffton University panel pens timely school song

BLUFFTON, Ohio Bluffton University has a new name, and now it has a new song too.

Joyce Schumacher, director of alumni, parent, and church relations, said the school is keeping its 90-year-old alma mater, but decided a new song should be written to fit the times and the college s new status as a university.

A committee of 10 alumni, faculty, staff, and students, collaborated to write lyrics to accompany the tune of an interdenominational hymm named, Weiss Flaggen.

First presented during the University Day celebration last month, it is now known as The Bluffton Song.
