Class of 2017
Lauren Moscato (President)
Lauren is super excited for her last year with the Resolutions. A senior and proud member of the Sloppy Sops, Lauren hails from her hometown of Wallingford, CT. When not singing her heart out, you can find Lauren enjoying the beautiful fall weather (while it’s still here), playing guitar, or obsessively listening to the band Love and Theft. As of now, Lauren plans on majoring in Biology, although this has the potential to change (many times). Her other interests include theater, reading a good book and eating grape tootsie pops.
Ben Fetzner (Musical Director)
Ben is a senior tenor from the exciting town of Granby, Connecticut, which is actually not exciting at all and full of cows. Once upon a time, Ben found Hello Kitty in New York. He also has a romantic relationship with his cat, with whom he shares a birthday. When he’s not taking obnoxious pictures of his pets, Ben likes to play piano, go on walks to wherever, and eat gratuitous amounts of pizza. He has no idea what he wants to do when he grows up and what he wants to major in, so that’s good. He absolutely adores Colgate and the Resolutions and couldn’t be more excited for the next two years!
JC was born on the streets of the Philippines and raised within the dark
depths of the Dirty Jerz. When he isn't lifting weights to prove his manliness
among the Bass Legion, he enjoys playing his guitar, skiing, shower singing and
long walks on the beach. As a junior in the Resos, JC looks forward to a few more years of singing and hopefully dancing (mainly whipping and nae-naeing) among the
Hannah is a junior alto from the minuscule town of Salem, New
York, where there are statistically more cows than people. Though still unsure what subject to major in, she is beyond excited to continue singing in the
Resolutions. You can often find Hannah quoting movies, writing nonsensical stories
in the early hours of the morning, and trying to sing along to songs she
doesn't actually know--yet. She’ll eat anything aside from meat or peanut
butter, just recently taught herself how to whistle, and is always up for a
screening of Lord of the Rings. Though content to walk almost anywhere, Hannah
hopes to travel abroad in and out of college as much as humanly possible.
Haley comes from New Jersey, the land of bagels and
housewives. Embarrassingly enough she is a Jersey girl at heart, and
loves the boardwalk, The Boss, the duck face, and taylor ham, egg, and
cheeses. Haley is in an unhealthy love-hate relationship with the
Pittsburg Steelers and has a particular affinity for music that makes her
cry. She loves boys who wear sweaters, but hates boys who wear women’s
cardigans. You can catch Haley embarrassing others with her “cool” dance
moves, and eating “reduced fat” peanut butter out of the jar. She is a
proud member of the Sloppy Sops!
Peter is currently a junior and a proud member of the Bass Legion. Peter hails all the way from Pennsylvania, right near the City
of Brotherly Love. He is extremely excited to be able to continue making music with the Resolutions. Outside of singing, Peter enjoys
bagels, his mom's classic Italian cooking, hanging out with his buddies, or
just some long nature walks.
Jordan is a junior newbie in the Resos, as well as a proud member of the tenor army. We are all children of the corn.
Class of 2018
Sophie is absolutely PUMPED to be one of the members of the Alto Mamas in the Colgate Resolutions. She is your classic Birkenstock-wearing (most of the time with socks!), flannel-donning lady from the distant state of Oregon. Outside of the Colgate Resolutions, Sophie fills her time by playing rugby (because, cmon, who doesn't want to tackle other people to the ground??) and participating in other clubs that she has yet to join. At a solid 5 feet 0 inches, you'll often find her standing on her tiptoes in order to reach things just beyond what she is actually capable of reaching. If you ever see her standing like this, help a girl out. She enjoys all things that make her laugh (which is almost anything), food, puppies, gummy vitamins, and cute babies. She couldn't be more excited for the next three years as a Reso!
Emma is a sophomore Alto Mama from the City of Brotherly Love. Although she hails from an urban environment, she prefers to spend most of her time wandering through the wilderness, becoming one with the trees and woodland creatures. She spends her summers leading youngsters on canoe trips in Northern Ontario, and is training to be an outdoor education staff member here at Colgate. During the rare occasions that she is in civilization, Emma likes to eat large quantities of food, travel, drink coffee, dance, laugh, and wear Birkenstocks (with socks.) She is psyched to be part of the Resos!
Emily Palermo, a sophomore, hails from the best borough of NYC, Brooklyn! You can often find her trying the next best food obsession in the city, spontaneously becoming British, and acting like her normal, Jewish grandma self. She enjoys choreographing full dance numbers with her friends, spinning/zumba, and eating the delicious food of her homeland, Italy. She could not be more ecstatic about being a part of the Resolutions and cannot wait for the next three years with her new family.
Ben, a sophomore, is psyched to be a tenor in the Resos this year. Born and raised 30 minutes away from Colgate in a town called New Hartford, he plays approximately one gazillion instruments, but had very little prior singing experience before joining the Resos. He enjoys eating food, spending time with cool people, and exercising in various forms. He also loves writing/arranging music, and hopes to make a career of churning out face-melting charts for all sorts of ensembles. Ben is a big softy, and he loves his family, friends, and yellow labrador retriever back home more than he could put into words. His goals for this year are to meet a bunch of awesome new people, keep in touch with the awesome people that are already in his life, spread holiday cheer beginning promptly on November 1st, make beautiful music, and have some unforgettable experiences. Also, he wouldn't mind having a respectable GPA.
Mike Vassolas is a sophomore, hailing from the ancient suburb of Niskayuna, New York (which isn't really that ancient). A proud member of the bass legion, he hopes to study Pre-Medicine, and Major in Molecular Biology. Mike enjoys singing low things, high things, and things somewhere in between. He is also the preeminent super smash bros player in the Resos. He could not be more excited for his second year in the best group on campus.
Y’all!” A long ways away from the Texas motherland, Caroline is an extremely
proud sophomore sloppy sop. You most likely will find this Mexican food snob
snacking on an inordinate amount of pickles. When she’s not competitively
binge-watching TV or embarrassing herself with public displays of
so-called “ dancing," this pre-med neuroscience major is crying in
her home- the library. Caroline is could not feel more blessed to be a part of
the beautiful Reso family and knows the warmth of their love will continue to
help her survive the winters to come!
Easily one of the most intimidating men on campus, Joe's associates affectionately refer to him as "The Reaper." Moving 7 times in only 18 years, Joe quickly learned to fend for himself, trusting only his own brute force. His goal is to one day make a real friend. Hobbies include knot-tying, pickpocketing, dealing blackjack, and fistfights. He had never sung before joining the Tenor Army.
Jacob is a sophomore from Cleveland, Ohio. Played trumpet in Hawken School’s Jazz band
and orchestra. All-state swimmer in high school, former varsity swimmer for
Colgate University. Very excited to be a part of an a cappella group for the
Class of 2019
is very excited to be a freshman here at Colgate! She hails from the
stereotypical suburbia of Chappaqua, NY. She is thrilled to be a member of the Resos
and even more thrilled to be an Alto Mama. She enjoys dancing, spreading ginger
power, and obsessing over her dog Molly (who is the cutest thing in the world).
She's so excited to spend the next four years with all the awesome Resos!!
Garfagnoli is a freshman newbie from the foggy city of San Francisco. Ever
since he first visited Colgate in the fall of 2015, Michael knew he wanted to
be in the Resos. This was primarily due to the description of their awesomeness
by the talented and ever handsome Ben Phelps. Michael has two adorable cats
named Murphy and Sunny who he loves deeply. He enjoys eating copious amounts of
food, especially those from his Italian-Chinese background, chilling with
friends, and acting. He is psyched to be a part of the Bass Legion and already
absolutely adores the entire Reso family.
