​​NJIT Giga Beats

NJIT Giga-Beats is the first ever a cappella group to be created at NJIT campus! Because the group was founded at NJIT, they are composed of mostly NJIT students, however there are some Rutgers University-Newark students in the group as well. The group covers mostly American Pop songs, and their covers can be found on their social medua. They have been spawning a love of a cappella music on both campuses since Fall 2014, and they hope everyone can continue to enjoy their music.
