This past Saturday, USC’s Indian Cultural Exchange (ICE) hosted the ninth annual Aag Ki Raat, a fusion dance competition in which collegiate dance teams from schools around the country competed for a $1,000 prize.

SNAPS Music Appreciation Club is equal parts social and
music club, and students aren’t likely to find a more laid-back student
organization than this one. In fact, the club used to meet in the Capstone room
of second-year history major Andy Ferguson, the club’s founder.
Over the course of his fifteen-year career, Sufjan Stevens has written folk music, electronic music, two film soundtracks, a ballet score and two albums dedicated to U.S. states.
