Students get a glimpse of Marching Pride

YSU band

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A record number of students signed up for this year’s Marching Pride day at Youngstown State University. Around 50 high school students attended.

Youngstown State University hosts the program to give students a chance to not only see what college life is like but to also give the incoming class a chance to see the preparation that goes into being in a college-level marching band.

The day started with a 9:30 a.m. Saturday in Bliss Hall with a question and answer session.

“We gave them some information about being in band,” said Dr. Brandt Payne, director of Athletic Band. “Just a fun day for them to get acclimated to campus and to see what we do on game days.”

This is the fourth year for the program.

The students got to watch the band get ready for Saturday’s game and even got a chance to practice with each section of the YSU marching band before the game.
