Overview: The Harvard Cheerleading Squad is a group of men and women dedicated to promoting school spirit, specifically through support of the College's athletic teams. Harvard Cheerleading has its roots in the mid-nineteenth century and boasts such alumni as Franklin D. Roosevelt (1904) and Homer Peabody (1941).

Cheerleading is considered a club sport and consists of 16-20 members. The squad cheers at all football games (home and away), as well as home games for the men's and women's basketball teams. In addition to eliciting enthusiasm from the crowd, the cheerleaders are dedicated to improving and perfecting their sport and continue to do so through participation in local and national competitions. Beyond events specifically related to cheerleading, squad members also serve as ambassadors to the greater Boston community. Unmistakable in our uniforms and by our positive demeanor, we participate in such community endeavors as "Halloween Town", The Honan 5K Road Race, Boston Bruins College Night, the Hasty Pudding's Woman of the Year Parade, as well as various Alumni events and community service projects.
