ATHLETIC BANDS

Pride of the Lowcountry (Fall)

The Pride of the Lowcountry is the premier marching band of the university. New members receive a $1,000 activity grant for the first year, and the award grows each year to $2,000 by your senior year. Full activity grant amount is awarded through successful participation in Pride of the Lowcountry marching band in the fall, Sixth Man Pep Band in the fall and spring, and Symphonic Band in the spring. The time commitment is much less than for high school band: 1. band camp is the week before classes begin, not in the middle of the summer; 2. we only practice during class time and game days; 3. performances are limited to an average of five home and two away games - not every weekend! 

Membership is open to any student on campus, regardless of prior experience or major.
