The Triton Way: Choosing Integrity
by Zhanming Wang

When the pressure mounts and the stakes are high,
Integrity is the beacon that guides us, never to shy.
For grades may be a fleeting glory,
But integrity is the foundation, a timeless story.

We may be tempted to take shortcuts, to cheat and lie,
But in the end, it's integrity that will never die.
It's the anchor that holds us steady, in the roughest of seas,
It's the light that shines within us, a guiding breeze.

So when the road ahead is uncertain, and the grades are on the line,

We must choose integrity, and make it shine.
For it's not just about us, it's about the Triton family,
We are all connected, like branches on a tree.

For UC San Diego, integrity is the North Star,
It guides us towards a brighter future, it's who we are.
It's the unshakable rock, that holds us firm,
It's the Triton way, the way to excel, to never squirm.

So let us choose integrity, in every step we take,

For it's the Triton way, the way to excel and make our mark.
For UC San Diego, we'll always choose integrity,
It's the Triton way, it's the way to excel, with dignity.
