HOME ~ College Football History
ULM's athletic teams have been known as the Indians since the school
began as Ouachita Parish Junior College in 1931. It is believed the
nickname was taken because of the legend of the Ouachita Indians, a
sub-tribe of the Caddo Indians who supposedly roamed and raided along
the Ouachita River basin.
ULM ALMA MATER
By the bayou's tranquil water,
Where friendships thrive and grow,
proudly stands our alma mater
ever home for us to go.
Here cypress stand in splendor
and gracefully they touch the breeze.
Though friends may leave
and lives may change
faithful we shall always be.
Shining bright the bayou's gem
ever loyal to ULM.
ULM FIGHT SONG
Cheer for the ULM Indians,
With their fighting spirit bold.
We will keep our banners waving,
The old maroon and gold.
Our battle cry rings to the sky,
Our goal is victory.
But win or lose, we'll stand by you,
And ever loyal we will be.
