Why Rush Something Extra?
The 2023-2024 school year marks the 47 years of Something Extra at Yale College. As an SSAA group, we are proud to be part of the growing tradition of community and song at Yale.
Here at Yale, we perform in a number of events, including our annual Jam in February and our Parents’ Weekend concert in October, both of which draw crowds of friends, relatives, and music-lovers. Something Extra is well known at Yale for their offbeat humor, so our on-campus concerts promise laughs as well as great music. We also have a fantastic time doing informal concerts with singing groups from other universities when we get the chance.
A big part of what makes Something Extra so unique is the remarkable diversity of interests and backgrounds within the group. The members of Something Extra do it all and love every minute. Need a crash course in guitar? Learn some chords from Ivana. Work on groundbreaking computer code with Cindy and explore ancient fossils with Sarah. Play a game of lacrosse with Charlotte and practice some dance moves with Jacqueline. Need some help with physics or econ? Sofie's got your back. Take a backpacking trip with Raina or learn the basics of EMT training with Kira. If you could use a good laugh, just spend 10 minutes in the presence of Aditi, Izzy, or Lara. And the next time you’re at a Yale theater production, look around—you may find all of us in the audience, escaping our homework to watch Ariane and Serena light-up center stage.
We could not be more excited to welcome the newest class of singers to campus, and the newest members of Something Extra to our group. See you at auditions!
