About Us

MIT’s cheerleading team is a co-ed club sport with the goal of promoting school spirit. Our members include MIT graduate and undergraduate students in a wide variety of majors.

We cheer at football and basketball games and events around the MIT/Boston community. We have cheered for Men’s and Women’s Rugby and Men’s Varsity Crew, and we have participated in Dr. Susan Hockfield’s Inauguration Block Party and the New England Clean Energy Council’s Green Tie Gala. For the past two years, we have competed in Daytona Beach, Florida, at the National Cheerleading Association’s Collegiate Nationals. See our performance from last year: MIT NCA Performance 2014!

Upcoming Fundraising Event!

We’re starting our fundraising for nationals early this year! We partnered up with a local Mary Kay Beauty Consultant so until Nov 22, sales through her personal Mary Kay site will give us back 25% if you enter “MIT Cheer” in the Notes section at the checkout. This is the perfect time to do some Christmas shopping while you’re at it.
If you’re on campus, stop by our booth in Lobby 10 from 10-5 to vote for which guy on the team should be crowned Mr. School Spirit, and he will get a free makeover! You can also order makeup when you visit us. Finally, on Friday Nov. 21 from 7-9 makeovers and facials will be available to ANYONE in the Z Center media room (the guys can’t have all the fun here, can they?). Please RSVP on our Facebook event so we know how many people to expect.
