The excitement of Mid American Conference athletic action and that rush when the cannon goes off in the Glass Bowl after a UToledo touchdown. The chance to share a perfect fall morning with your kids at the Homecoming parade or peruse artists' handiwork at Art on the Mall.

UToledo Alumni Association, affiliate and chapter events foster a sense of community. They bring you back to the place where it all began, reuniting you with fellow Rockets to share once again in our UToledo history and traditions.

We also have an Alumni Association Annual Meeting. Often held in the William and Carol Koester Alumni Pavilion, this fun, springtime event features presentations by Alumni Association scholarship recipients. We also recognize the affiliate, chapter and volunteer of the year and welcome new officers and trustees.

UToledo School Songs


Original by Dave Connelly and Bernie Jones, 1975 arrangement by David Jex
U of Toledo, we'll fight for you (fight, fight, fight)
U of Toledo, love that gold and blue (let's go blue)
Men of the Varsity, the enemy must yield
We'll fight just like our ancestors
And march right down the field


"Fair Toledo" by Gilbert Mohr and Jean Strout debuted at halftime of the Marshall-Toledo basketball game on March 2, 1959.
In tower shadows voices now raising,
To alma mater Golden and Blue,
Fair Toledo praise to thee,
Portal of learning ever be,
Hallowed halls we shall revere,
Vow to keep thy memory dear.
