3 Cheers for Georgetown

Any Georgetown student or alum can probably sing the "Alma Mater" or the "Georgetown Fight Song" in their sleep. But what about such ditties as the “Hipper Dipper," the “Ray-Cheer," or, my personal favorite, the “Short Yell"? Never fear, dear Hoyas! We in the University Archives are here to help. Below you will find a sampling of Georgetown cheers and yells that fans have sung proudly over the years. It is high time tunes like the “Locomotive” or the “Dirge” make a comeback. Why not learn a new cheer and impress your friends at the next home game!
