MIT Cheer & The UA Present the 2013 Mr. & Ms. School Spirit Competition!

Do you think MIT is the best place on earth? Are you an ISawYou celebrity with something to prove? Do your friends excuse themselves from dinner when you talk about just how much you love MIT? Are you the lone fan screaming at MIT games? Do you cheer as loud as you can at Ring Premiere (with or without the alcohol)?  Late at night, do you fantasize about Tim the Beaver?
Oh–not you, but your “friend” fits these qualifications? Then nominate them for the Mr. and Ms. School Spirit Competition hosted by the MIT Cheerleading Squad! Let your peers decide in the Institute’s first School Spirit Competition. Let your money do the talking, and vote all week in Lobby 10, or Thursday at the Student Center.
1. You can donate any dollar amount to cast your vote
2. Throwing coins in a candidates bucket will count as a deduction against them
3. At the end of the week, we will announce a Mr., Ms., and Professor School SpiritThank you for your support! All donations will go towards MIT Cheerleading Squad’s 1st-ever Trip to NCA Nationals.

Thank You For All Who Supported Our Alumni Telethon!

To all of our Cheerleading Alumni who we reached by phone last night, thank you for reconnecting with the MIT Cheerleading Community! A few of you we couldn’t reach, but will continue to call today and over the weekend. Thank you so much for your support! We truly appreciate and value our alumni. If you didn’t have a chance to connect with one of us yesterday, here is our current fundraising progress and how you can help: www. Check out the progress we have made so far!


We are well on our way to raising enough money to help subsidize the cost of new uniforms. As you probably know, this is a huge deal for students who would otherwise be unable to join the squad for the financial burden of a uniform. To all who pledged to support us through making a donation last night, thank you so much for making a difference for you. All of your gifts and words of support/wisdom were so very appreciated, and without your help, we wouldn’t be making as much progress to achieving our goals this year!

We will soon be updating our site with a brand new “Donors” page and an “Alumni Spotlight,” so please let us know if you have any stories or old pictures from your time on the squad! It would be FANTASTIC to get a story with contributors from an entire squad (ex: ’04 squad, ’05 squad, ’99 squad, ’09..etc).

If you have any questions about the team’s current goals, the fundraising efforts, or anything else, please feel free to contact us at And, as always:

I’m a Beaver, you’re a Beaver, we are Beavers all.
And when we get together, we do the Beaver call.
