Music was always a big part of Mike Severo’s life. He
loved playing the drums. But when it came time to go to college, he
wanted to pursue something that he felt would offer a little more
stability for the future. The big question was what to study.
“At a lot of institutions, if you’re undeclared you
have to find your own way, and it’s an arduous
process,” Severo says. “At Ithaca, there’s a
concentration on growing organically with the school.”
