SJSU Anthem

The SJSU story has an anthem.

Imagine that this is the soundtrack of every story you tell about the people in your college, department or program. Let it inspire the tone of your storytelling.

What makes us Spartans? We choose the unlikely path because every test of our character and stamina is an opportunity to learn. We have advantages that can’t be taught: grit, focus, imagination. We believe that dreams are realized through hard work, intelligently applied. We rally. We adapt. We create.

At San Jose State University, we discover who we want to be—for ourselves, for our families and for our communities. Different and unexpected begin here—at the heart of a transforming valley, in a city that is tough and beautiful. We are Spartans. What powers us changes our world.
