"Carabins" is the name of the sports teams of the University of Montreal, located in Montreal, Quebec. The school was originally called the Montreal campus of Laval University. The Carabins are members of the Reseau du sport etudiant du Quebec (RSEQ) and U Sports (formerly known as CIS). The Carabins folded their hockey program after the 1971-72 season. The RSEQ does not operate a hockey league, and has not done since 1987.
As an institution, the university was first founded when the Université Laval in Quebec City founded a new branch in Montréal in 1878, which became known as the Université de Laval à Montréal. This initially went against the wishes of Montréal's prelate, who advocated an independent university in his city. Certain parts of the institution's educational facilities, such as those of the Séminaire de Québec and the Faculty of Medicine, founded as the Montreal School of Medicine and Surgery, had already been established in Montréal in 1876 and 1843 respectively. The Vatican granted the university some administrative autonomy in 1889, thus allowing it to choose its own professors and license its own diplomas. However it was not until 8 May 1919 that a papal charter from Pope Benedict XV granted full autonomy to the university. It thus became an independent Catholic university and adopted Université de Montréal as its name. Laval composed by Wilfrid Beaudry was dedicated to the students at Laval University and the Université de Montréal. The music for piano was published in Québec by J. Beaudry, circa 1906.
