Congratulations and welcome to Yale, class of ’20! Ask any average Joe about Yale a cappella Rush, and he’d tell you it’s a month of performances, meals and auditions, beginning with a Sunday night concert in Woolsey Hall and culminating in the campus-wide insanity that is Tap Night. Joe was never very good with descriptions; we’ll take it from here.
More than anything, Rush is a fantastic way to get to know some awesome Yalies right from the outset of your college experience. How, you ask?
You’ll wade through seas of aggressively colorful a cappella shirts every day of your first month of college.
You’ll sing ‘Aura Lee’ more times in one weekend than you ever sang ‘Since U Been Gone’ in all of 3rd grade.
You’ll attend Singing Desserts until you get early-onset diabetes.
You’ll eat Rush Meals in every conceivable dining location on campus.
At the end of it all, you’ll not only have a slew of new Yale 2020 Facebook friends, you’ll have had the chance to really get to know the members of each a cappella group at Yale and to decide which one is right for you.
New friends. Lots of music. Free food. What’s not to love(?)
