From the South to Syracuse, the artists fused electronic dance music with southern style rap for an unforgettable ending to University Union's final Bandersnatch concert of the year.

Southern rapper Isaiah Rashad headlined the event and captivated the audience with his ability to transition from performing smooth soulful songs to raw raps over southern beats. Rashad says he finds his inspiration in spontaneity and from movies such as Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing". Rashad signed with California based, independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment in 2013 and says that, "it's very inspiring...It's a family, we work and chill together".

Star of FOX's 'New Girl' visits SU, gives Q&A with students.

When asked to speak at SU, New Girl’s Max Greenfield said he would much rather come to accept his honorary degree and serve as this year’s commencement speaker.

“You guys go to the cool school,” he said Tuesday night. “Go ‘Cuse! Carmelo Anthony foreva!”

No, Greenfield didn’t go to SU, but his witty, woman-loving, Jewish-professing character, Schmidt did, and it was Schmidt who showed up to deliver a commencement-styled talk filled with advice, jokes and even a little Judaism on Tuesday night.
