sheet music of song
The Washington State Fight song was written in 1919 by WSU students Zella Melcher and Phyllis Sayles as a class project.

Warm up those vocal cords.

Cougar Nation is needed to help kick off the Fall 2020 semester with a massive group singing of the Washington State University Fight Song from wherever Cougs happen to be.

Set for 7 p.m. Pacific on Sunday, Aug. 23, all WSU students, fans, alumni, faculty, staff and supporters are encouraged to stop what they are doing and sing, play, sign, whistle, hum or get creative with the Fight Song.

Hosted by the Pullman campus but intended as a systemwide celebration, participants are encouraged to capture their versions of the Fight Song on video and post to social media. Be sure to tag @WSUPullman on whatever account you are using and include the hashtags #WSUTogether and #WSUFightSong. Select videos may be shared.
