History of the Och Tamale
Originally called the Psalm of Collegiate Thanksgiving, the Och Tamale cheer was written by cheerleader C. Merle Waterman '20 and classmates Walter J. Richards '21 and Jack Slutsk '22. The Och Tamale is recited when the Bulldogs score a touchdown, at Homecoming and alumni events, and as a greeting to fellow alumni on campus, in cities across the nation and around the world.
