Why Rush

Something Extra?

The 2019-2020 school year marks the anniversary of 50 years of women at Yale College. As an all-women group, we are proud to be part of the growing tradition of sisterhood 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 women of Something Extra do it all and love every minute. Need a crash course in dancing? Just ask Tomeka for a demonstration of her legendary choreography skills, or have Julia show you how to Zumba. If you could use a good laugh, just spend 10 minutes in the presence of Bay or Grace. Have Serena teach you how to create an amazing film or work on groundbreaking computer code with Cat. Looking to practice a foreign language? Chat with Stephanie in Italian, with Heather in Swahili, or with Valerie in Spanish. 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 Kyra or Sara 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!
