Susan Hockfield’s Private Concert by Snively '11

La la la la la la la laaaaaaa!!!!

Yes, we are this cool.

We perform our drinking song, in capes, for our president.

Also, last year, the Marching Band was a bit more destructive. As you can see, Alex (a prefrosh then, an ’11 now) decided to shatter a light with his sousaphone.

    God, I love the MIT Marching Band. They are officially the coolest marching band EVER.

    They came to a field hockey game this year, and played “The Final Countdown.” Let me tell you, you have not LIVED until you’ve heard a marching band play The Final Countdown.

  4. 5th– YAYAYAYAY!!!!!

    Off-topic question: When is it “too early” for a teacher to fill out an evaluation form?

  7. Kelly says:

    My pep band plays the final countdown! I love it.

    An off topic question, but how do we contact the MIT admissions office. They’re not responding!

  9. Snively says:

    @’12 Hopeful
    If you were trying to contact them during CPW then you probably had some difficulty. Also, immediately after CPW is the only break in work they ever have so a bunch of admissions staff is taking a really long vacation. You can try e-mail but you may just have to wait.

    Oh yeah – the marching band was rehearsing the final countdown when we were grading SAT diagnostic exams…good times, good times.

    I was totally there smile

    My son was one of the prefrosh who joined up with the Band. President Hockfield, with (I believe) her husband and sister, were totally surprised but clearly entertained. The stop at her home seemed spontaneous . Snively went “above and beyond” by climbing a wall for this shot!
