The Colgate Thirteen, also known as The Colgate 13, is an undergraduate all-male a cappella group at Colgate University. Established in 1942, the group is named for the 13 men, each offering $13 and 13 prayers, who founded the university in 1819.[1] The Thirteen regularly perform at schools, alumni, community, corporate and sporting events. The group is known for performing the National Anthem at Super Bowl XIII in 1979.[2]
