The crew, playing this song live for the first time ever. It is currently nameless... This was at Indiana Wesleyan University, and it was at like 1:30 in the AM... Everyone was tired... Matt started talking about how he liked all of "you Taylor" people... Everyone forgivingly giggled. Shorter set, but it was cool to see Jamie Macleod back with everyone. Not sure what i think of the song just yet, it's comparatively mellow.

Music The University's music department is most noted for its premier choir, the University Chorale, directed by music department chair, Dr. Todd Guy. Throughout the year, the eighty voice ensemble regularly travels to many states, singing in churches across the country and performing before thousands of people each year. Most notably, the Chorale has performed several times at the internationally recognized Crystal Cathedral in Orange County, California and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The group has also toured throughout Europe on several occasions, and recently was selected to sing at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The choir is made up of students in a variety of majors. Auditions are held at the beginning of each school year as hundreds of students audition for the open spots. Other ensembles at IWU include the Wind Ensemble, University Singers, One Voice, His Instrument, Master's Praise, and Orchestra. These groups perform on campus and regionally on a regular basis. Throughout the school year, students also perform a wide variety of solo and joint recitals. The Phillippe Performing Arts Center is home to the IWU Music Department.


  The University offers nine intercollegiate sports for both men and women. The Wildcats compete in the Mid-Central College Conference and are the conference's winningest school. IWU is also a member of the NAIA Division 1 and Division 2 in men and women's basketball and NCCAA Division I. IWU has won the MCC Conference Commissioners Cup a record eight consecutive years, and placed among the Top 20 in the NAIA United States Sports Academy Directors' Cup Standings nine straight years. The University was awarded the 2008 NCCAA President's Cup as the best overall athletic program in the nation, and shared the award with Cedarville University in 2009, the fourth time IWU has won the award. IWU has also won 9 national championships in the last three years alone.


The men's sports began MCC play in 1968 and the women's sports began MCC play in 1986. The University holds the record for MCC conference championships with 121 titles. The University has 24 national championship titles, including 1 NAIA national championship from the record-setting 2006-2007 women's basketball team that went 38-0.
