Hoban Traditions

Hoban is a school full of rich traditions.

From annual events, such as Mum Day, to the singing of the alma mater, traditions play a big part in what it means to be a Hoban Knight. These traditions engage the heart and bind the school community together.

Alma Mater

In 1976, amid some dissatisfaction with the original alma mater, a contest was held to write a new one. Mark S. Schweitzer '76 won with the current lyrics. Brother Eugene Weisenberger, who taught music at Hoban at the time, set the lyrics to music. 

Fight Song

The lyrics to the fight song were altered slightly in 1973, when the school became coeducational. The line "All cheer for Hoban High" was once "Men cheer for Hoban High."
