Flashback 1919! Polytechnic School Song

The beginning of Metropolitan Community College dates back to 1915, originally known as the Kansas City Polytechnic Institute. Here is the school song taken from a 1919 yearbook:

You may speak of universities, of K. and M.S.U
Of Harvard and of Michigan, and even Princeton, too.
But for every single classman, there’s none that can compete
With Junior C of old K.C., the school that can’t be beat.
Hoorah for the College! Sing, Tra-la-la-la-la.
Tis there you get your knowledge! Tra-la-la-la-la.
We like her for her faculty, we like her for her Rep.
We like her for her students, and we like her for her Pep.
We like her for the things she’s done, and the things she’s going to do.
So Junior C. of old K.C., we’ll give a cheer to you.
Roll ‘em on the floor,
Roll ‘em on the floor,
For Polytech, we’ll win by Heck!
Roll ‘em on the floor.

Are you one of us? 
If you are one of the hundreds of thousands of students who have passed through the doors of MCC over the past few decades, we want to hear from you. Visit to reconnect with MCC.
