SWOSU Marching Bulldogs Looking for New Members


Southwestern Oklahoma State University's marching band is inviting current students as well as incoming freshmen to join the band this fall.

Dr. James South, chair of the SWOSU Music Department and director of the Marching Bulldogs, said college band is a unique experience that is fun, rewarding and memorable. There are positions available for the band, drum line and color guard.

South said the time commitment is less than most high school bands.  He said it does not matter if a student has not played recently.

To join, students must enroll in MUSIC 4081 Marching Band (section 2444).  The band rehearses from 12 noon to 12:50 p.m. Monday through Friday and performs at SWOSU home football games. There is a four-day mini-camp August 15-18 that takes place before fall semester classes begin. No audition is required to enroll.
