Daily Student Perspective Monday – Senior Jeremy Chance After a few months of summer that was too short for some and maybe a bit too long for others, the men of the Purdue Varsity Glee Club are at it again. We arrived at Elliott Hall of Music to load up the buses and make our way to Camp Tecumseh, our home for the next week. Once we arrived we unloaded the buses and set up our equipment in the rehearsal room, we wasted no time before starting the first rehearsal with this collection of guys of the year. After the morning's rehearsal and lunch, we did some team building activities. Because we spend so much time together rehearsing and performing, it's important to start the year off with a strong foundation, not only musically but with group cohesiveness, and the activities definitely helped. The rest of the day consisted of dinner with the Purduettes and a few more rehearsals; a very productive day, for new men and old man alike, to say the least. The tone has definitely been set for a successful week and a successful year, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the week.
