Texas State University has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years, and it is important for new students to find their place within the university community. As a member of the Bobcat Marching Band, you will be surrounded by students with similar interests who will soon become lifelong friends. The band truly possesses a family atmosphere, a support system on which one can rely throughout their college career. You DO NOT need to be a music major to join any of the bands at Texas State, and everyone with an interest in continuing to perform is encouraged to participate.
The Bobcat Marching Band now offers SCHOLARSHIPS for all members!
