Daily Student Perspective Friday – Freshman Kyle Hagemeier
Going into the Purdue Varsity Glee Club, I didn't know what to expect. I did however know that hard work and dedication would have to be present throughout Glee Club Camp week. Before camp I tried to be as prepared as possible, and I feel most of the other new guys did as well. We all seemed to want to succeed in this very prestigious group. I feel camp was a good way to prepare all the New Men for a busy, exciting year. The long camp rehearsals and the need to blend in with all the older members of the club was difficult sometimes, but I soon came to realize that this is only the beginning of the wonderful experiences and memories I will create with the Purdue Varsity Glee Club.
