Go Tech!

Tonight MIT made it to the final four of the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball tournament by beating Franklin & Marshall College 69-54.  This is the first time ever that this has happened and it's pretty darn cool.  I know we're Division III and that's not as glamorous as Division I, but it still means something to get this far, especially considering that MIT does no sports recruiting.

In honor of the team's success, I'm posting MIT's cheer.  The only thing you need to know is that Tim (MIT backwards) the beaver is our mascot.  Why the beaver?  It's native to North America, is nature's engineer, is very industrious and is mostly nocturnal.  Without further ado, here it is:

I'm a beaver,
You're a beaver,
We are beavers all!
And when we get together,
We do the beaver call!

E to the u du dx,
E to the x dx!
Cosine secant tangent sine,
Integral, radical, mu, dv!
Slipstick, slide rule, M-I-T!
Go tech!


  1. Just FYI, MIT does recruit, but they do not offer athletic scholarships.
