Fly High Fight Song of the University of Hartford Hawks Words and music by Stephen Gryc
Fly high, Hawks, fly high, And know that victory is nigh. Let's try, Hawks, let's try, For we know it's do or die. By courage be led. Have pride in the dear old white and red. Fly high, Hawks, fly high, And soar to glory in the sky.
