Those were President Sue Coleman‘s last words in today’s New Students Convocation. Though the speeches and introductions were boring people on my side to sleep, the acapella groups wowed the audience with their vocals. Those guys (and gals) have voices that could win the next three Singapore Idols, so that should give you an idea of how good they are.
Artscapade and Escapade were a bit of a let down after all the hype they pumped into us. But I did win a Michigan t-shirt (to add to about 4?) so it wasn’t so bad. And the band that played at Artscapade was simply stellar and so, so original. They’re cutting an album soon, now I just wished I had caught the name of the band.
UMich is truly a vibrant community.
