Today is the day that signals we're truly in the home stretch before football season – the first day of Band Week. The new freshman reported today to start working with the rank leaders, section leaders, returning Drum Major Cody Martin, and Professor Boerma. In addition to signing out their instruments, they were out on the blacktop at Elbel Field for a pair of two-hour rehearsals. Congratulations to those who survived, and good luck with the rest of your week. We refer you back to our Guide For Incoming Freshmen, including the comments.
Good luck to all of you this week; you're going to enjoy it all through the exhaustion. These people will be your constant companions for at least the next semester, and you're bound to make some of your best friends throughout your college experience. Someone you meet this week? Yeah, you're probably going to be in their wedding.
