We greet them with a song. From [ http://www.williams.edu/home/about_traditions.php the Williams Web page] : :THE MOUNTAINS :O, proudly rise the monarchs of our mountain land, :With their kingly forest robes, to the sky, :Where Alma Mater dwelleth with the chosen band, :And the peaceful river floweth gently by. :CHORUS :The mountains! the mountains! we greet them with a song, :Whose echoes rebounding their woodland heights along, :Shall mingle with anthems that winds and fountains sing. :'til hill and valley gaily, gaily ring. :Beneath their peaceful shadows may old Williams stand, :'til suns and mountains nevermore shall be, :The glory and the honor of our mountain land, :And the dwelling of the gallant and the free. This was written by Washington Gladden, Williams class of 1859.
