Join The Largest Team on Campus

The University of Connecticut Marching Band, also known as “The Pride of Connecticut”, is made up of over 300 students that represent the diversity of our campus and have varying levels of marching and playing experience. Our members represent every program of study and come from all across the country. Every year we work to produce the best band possible. For many of our members, playing in the marching band is the most memorable part of their college experience. The band has performed throughout New England, the United States and even Europe. Joining the marching band is the best way to transition from high school to college and make friendships before the semester even begins. The marching band teaches students how to manage time wisely and succeed in college. In fact, the cumulative GPA of the band is a 3.4. We are UConn’s largest student organization, and we want you to join us!
