Baze University Anthem Lyrics
Baze University, Right in the city of unity
Raise your banner with
Pride and dignity
Over the hills, the land and sea
Driven by excellence, hard-work and diligence
And our reach is high above the skies
Shine on Baze University
Ever shining as the morning sun
Marching on to glory
Learn to lead and learn to live
Shine on… shine on……… Baze University.
We are a university with a unique history
Seeking wisdom and honour
With the power of knowledge
Technology in reality
Arts and the sciences
Making giant strides blazing the trail and setting the pace
