Ursus Verses was founded in 2001 by a few forward-thinking Bowdoin students who recognized the need for a new co-ed a cappella group on the Bowdoin campus. They recruited other members from their ranks of friends and peers, and Ursus took hold as a formally recognized group. Since 2001, however, we have grown by leaps and bounds!
We have worked hard to quickly rise up through the proverbial ranks of the collegiate a cappella scene by traveling and hosting invitational concerts at Bowdoin. We have sung with many prestigious collegiate groups including the MIT Logarhythms, Mt. Holyoke V8′s, Tufts Beelzebubs, Skidmore Bandersnatchers, Brandeis VoiceMale, Boston University InAChord, Boston College Dynamics, UNH Alabaster Blue, and UMass Vocal Suspects, as well as the five other Bowdoin groups! Over the coming years we hope to continue to improve in all aspects, and are striving to continue to create a history of which we can all be proud.
