Now that Kellogg has started accepting students for the Class of 2012, it is a great time for me to address something that was missing from the pre-Kellogg To-Do list that gets sent out to incoming students.  I’m not quite sure how they managed to forget something this important, but I can only imagine that some heads rolled for this egregious mistake.

Before the first day of CIM (orientation), make sure that you know and can sing along to the following songs:
<ul><li>Don’t Stop Believin’ - Journey 
</li><li>Livin’ on a Prayer - Bon Jovi</li></ul>In addition to a common distaste for the letter ‘g’, these songs share a special role at Kellogg as our informal anthems.  Anytime that you are at a social event, the probability that you will hear either of these songs increases exponentially as a function of the number of Kellogg students at that event.  It only really takes two students before you have a fairly good chance of hearing the songs.

At the ski trip in December, we were even treated to the seemingly rare, yet probably quite common, back-to-back playing of the songs during the 80’s Party.  I managed to record the first half before giving in to the sheer awesomeness of it all.  BTW, trust me when I say that the video below does not do justice to the amount of energy that always greets these songs.
