Big Purple Color Guard
Potential members should have at least one year of color guard experience. Exceptions can be made on an individual basis, especially for those with experience in twirling, cheerleading or drill team.
The color guard is required to be present at all rehearsals and performances, including football games, chapel performances, parades, etc. The color guard rehearses with the band five days a week (Monday - Friday 11:50 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.) and has a two-hour sectional once a week outside of the scheduled band time. Sectional days and times will be determined by the co-captains and members based on schedules.
All color guard members are eligible for the Big Purple scholarship.
