I MISSED SOME PARTS!!!
1)Pereat tristitia,
Pereant osores.
Pereat diabolus,
Quivis antiburschius
Atque irrisores. --
-----
Let sadness perish!
Let haters perish!
Let the devil perish,
Along with anybody else who is anti-scholarship
And anti-intellectual!
2) Quis confluxus hodie
Academicorum?
E longinquo convenerunt,
Protinusque successerunt
In commune forum.
----
Why has such a multitude of the academy
Come here today?
They have come together from far and wide;
And now forthwith they ascend
Into the academic forum!
3)Vivat nostra societas,
Vivant studiosi
Crescat una veritas,
Floreat fraternitas
Patriae prosperitas
----
Long live our faculty association!
Long live those devoted to learning!
May unity in the truth increase,
May our brotherhood
And the prosperity of our country flourish!
4) Alta Mater floreat,
Quae nos educavit;
Caros et commilitones,
Dissitas in regiones,
Sparsos, congregavit
----
May our Nourishing Mother thrive,
the university who has educated us!
Dear ones and comrades
from scattered regions,
although divided, have now congregated!

A student's Epicurean response (c.1287) to the Stoic Seneca's De Brevitate Vitae (On the Shortness of Life)?

Executive summary:
1. Life's short; so let's party.
2. We're headed for heaven or hell.
3. Death is unavoidable.
4. But the academic life is best.
5. Statesmen and benefactors sustain it.
6. We can't forget to praise women.
7. But we condemn all enemies of the intellectual life.

To be sung when dining together as students:
Gaudeamus igitur
Juvenes dum sumus.
Post jucundam juventutem
Post molestam senectutem
Nos habebit humus.

Ubi sunt qui ante nos
In mundo fuere?
Vadite ad superos
Transite in inferos
Hos si vis videre.

Vita nostra brevis est
Brevi finietur.
Venit mors velociter
Rapit nos atrociter
Nemini parcetur.

Vivat academia!
Vivant professores!
Vivat membrum quodlibet
Vivant membra quaelibet
Semper sint in flore.

Vivant et res publica
et qui illam regit.
Vivat nostra civitas,
Maecenatum caritas
Quae nos hic protegit.

Vivant omnes virgines
Faciles, formosae.
Vivant et mulieres
Tenerae, amabiles
Bonae laboriosae.

Pereat tristitia,
Pereant osores.
Pereat diabolus,
Quivis antiburschius
Atque irrisores.

~~~

Therefore let us party
While we are young!
After pleasant youth
After troublesome old age
The earth will have us!

Where are they who before us
Have been in the world?
Go up to the heavenly regions
Or cross over into the hellish ones
If you wish to see them!

Our life is brief;
It will be ended shortly!
Death comes quickly;
Cruelly it snatches us;
No one will be spared

Long live the university!
Long live the profs!
Long live any student!
Long live any students whatsoever!
May they always be the best!

Long live the republic also
And those who rule it!
Long live our city,
And the charity of benefactors
Which protects us here!

Long live all virgins
Affable and shapely!
Long live mature women also,
Tender and lovely,
Loyal and industrious!

Let sadness perish!
Let haters perish!
Let the devil perish,
Along with anybody else who is anti-scholarship
And anti-intellectual!

Three verses to add for official academic occasions:

8. Look at who is here for convocation.
9. Look at those who greet them on stage.
10. The university unites us.
