My Bentley Story by Stephen Smith

It was 1965 and Bentley had just started intercollegiate sports with a men's basketball team. The administration decided the school needed a mascot and decided it best to let the students decide by vote. All the students were buzzing about different mascots that would fit Bentley's image or lack thereof in students' eyes. However there was one name most talked about because of its relation to the proposed location of the new campus in Waltham and it's double entendre. The vote was taken and the new mascot was to be the Beavers. The administration shortly decided on Falcons with no further explanation. We were duped. I still think Bentley Beavers sounds a lot better.
