I support this idea, but it kinda belongs to another Youtube clip when a dude proposed (its pretty baller, not to get all sentimental and shit) using this song

I think I'm with the (albeit small) majority here in saying that its time to retire the song. It was excellent in 2009, but had diminishing returns last year, and I think the trend would continue this year.
If you want a song with an emotional Pay-out, I think "Wet Sand" by the RHCP is a very fitting song which speaks to our school's traditions / requirements for a program being bizarre &unique, but owning up to that (i.e. "You don't form in the wet sand, I do"). The lyrics are very abstract (as most RHCP lyrics tend to be), but the song really seems like it could fit this year.
It also has the added benefit of 1/2 of theband being born in Michigan (Anthony K. and Chadd Smith both from Grand Rapids and are said to be huge Michigan fans. Rumor has it that they even played the intro to the Michigan fight song in Columbus and were banned from Radio play for some time).

You'd be amazed how many people are eager to help when someone reaches out to them with initiative. This is one tactic I used when attempting to move into my industry (Digital Media).
The hit rates are low (1 person out of 5 typically responds), but those who do respond tend to have a lot of enthusiasm in giving back. It's unlikely they will be able to give you a job, but they may know others in the industry and good resources. I'd contact your office of Career Development or use filters on the Alumni Directory (I went to UMich, but I'm certain CMU will have a similar type directory).
Best of luck!

I worked for Accenture, doing Management consulting for a few years out of Undergrad. My client was Yale, so I spent Mon-Thursday down there.
I would say my situation was rare since more companies are based in the city than New Haven. Had a few good times down there (The Playwright is a good place to grab a few brews).
That was the beauty / pain of consulting, lots of travel to random places.

I live in NYC but commuted to New Haven for the better part of a year while working in consulting. The town itself may not be great, but there are some great places to grab a bite to eat:
- New Haven pizza is amazing (Sallys, Pepes)
- Bar is a cool pizzeria/brewery
- Louies Lunch is a great place for burgers
Recommendation would be to move to a nearby town (shelton / trumbull / etc) and commute (20 minutes or so).
