Many moons ago in 2003, a ragtag group of brave Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute students joined forces to fight off the bitter winds of Troy, NY through the power of music. Among them, they shared a love for singing a cappella and procrastinating on homework. Thus, Partial Credit was born. The Troy winters may still be cold, but the group lives on, spreading the warmth and joy of a cappella music through a wide range of musical tastes. Whether an indie tune, a comedic musical salute, or a unique ballad, Partial Credit takes pride in entertaining others while having fun performing.
