The Governors!


Austin...How do you pronounce it?

Austin Peay (pronounced “pea” like the vegetable) was named after a governor of Tennessee and a favorite son of Clarksville. 

Governor Peay signed a law establishing Austin Peay Normal School in 1927 but he passed away before the school could hold its first classes. 

The state legislature named the new school in his honor and that is why we are...

Let's Go Peay

"Let's Go Peay!"


Seriously!  Is that the cheer?

APSU has one of the most memorable chants in college sports – “Let’s Go Peay”! 


Seriously!  That’s our cheer.  It is on banners all over campus, throughout the book store and on tee shirts. 


We embrace the silliness yet take pride in the cheer.  Try it.  You’ll like it too.
