I have a degree from Johns Hopkins, and even I have no idea what the university’s school song is. So it’s probably a good idea that the school is in the market for a new song… and that they’re looking to us eager amateurs to come up with it.

The rules are simple: come up with a song that’s memorable, easy to sing, uncomplicated, and is under three minutes long. Oh, and it should “instill pride and spirit” in Hopkins. You do, alas, have to be a student, faculty, staff member, or alumni of Hopkins to submit.

After considering all the submissions, a nine-member panel of students, faculty, and alumni will pick five finalists. The final winner will be selected via school-wide vote.
