ABOUT THE BAND

For over 100 years, the Michigan Marching Band has thrilled thousands of fans with exciting performances that have made this one of the great college bands in the country. That tradition of excellence thrives today as the MMB continues its pursuit of the highest levels of visual and musical performance as it "takes the field" at the Big House in Ann Arbor.

At a school the size of the University of Michigan, it is important for new students to find their place within the college community. As a member of the Michigan Marching Band, you will be surrounded by friends before classes even begin. This "family" will provide a valuable support system throughout your college career, helping you adjust to life in Ann Arbor and create life-long friendships. You will have instant study partners, as members of the Michigan Marching Band represent almost every academic unit at the University, including LS&A (52%), Engineering (37%), School of Music, Theatre & Dance (5%), Architecture & Urban Planning, Art and Design, Business, Dentistry, Education, Information, Kinesiology, Medicine, Natural Resources & Environment, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Policy, and Social Work.
