dominos_ultimatepizzadeliveryvehicle16

I did not ride in this fancy car, it was probably a Prius or something, I don’t know for sure.


And we’re back, folks. This is the last time (I promise) that I will tell this story, the story of my travels as a weary first year from South Campus to the lovely Lewis or Norton parking lot.

That’s right gang. Despite having no vocal training, no singing experience, and only the vaguest idea of what a time signature is, I went undercover and pretended to be in an a cappella group for two (2) years so you don’t have to.

The Thrill Descends into the Pit

These are the faces of exploration

Magellan circumnavigating the globe. Leif Erikson first setting foot on the North American continent. The moon landing, if you believe that sort of thing. What do these all have in common?

Come join us on our journey.
