Medfield! Medfield! Rah! Rah! Rah!

If a Disney movie was set in a college during the late 1950's and 1960's, chances are it was Medfield College. That's where the Absent Minded Professor taught school and a young Kurt Russell attended.

Of course, Medfield was a fictional school that often looked suspiciously like the Walt Disney Studios. Despite being fictional, it boasted a fight song written by the Sherman Brothers:

Proud are we of mighty Medfield
Alma Mater dear.
All your sons and daughters hail to thee,
Medfield College of Technology,
And while we hold your banner high
Rah! Rah!

Rah! Rah!
For proud are we of mighty Medfield
Loyally we cheer
Medfield! Medfield!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Our Alma Mater dear.
