Student organizations at Ithaca College are focusing on building a sense of community virtually during the remote fall semester
In the Watters Theater at Binghamton University, Premium Blend, the only all-women a cappella group at Ithaca College, huddled close, hoping to hear its name called as a finalist at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA).
“Everyone who’s in it pretty much tried out for another a cappella group or didn’t get a chance to try out for one,” Damien McMillan said.
Ithaca College students, faculty and staff celebrated First Bomber Weekend on campus Sept. 1–4 with A Cappella performances, yoga classes and fireworks.
Ithaca College’s all-female a cappella group Premium Blend took third place at the International Collegiate Championship of A Cappella semifinal, making them eligible to enter a Wild Card round for the chance to compete at the ICCA Finals.
On Feb. 6, Ithaca College’s own Premium Blend took first place at the ICCA quarterfinals and was one of two finalists advancing to the semifinal round.
Sophomore Luke Harbur was selling merchandise and escorting people to their seats at the concert for the a capella group Premium Blend when he was made aware of the fire by an audience member who noticed the smoke.
