Alumni Band members from Homecoming 2018

Upcoming Band Alumni Events

Am I a WIU Band Alumni?

We've had this come up a few times, and I wanted to make sure that everyone knows the qualifications to participate in the Homecoming Alumni Band or the Alumni Pep Band.

  1. Must have been a member of the Marching Leathernecks (for Homecoming Alumni Band) or WIU Pep Band (for Alumni Pep Band) for at least 1 full season.
  2. Are no longer a student at Western Illinois.
  3. You do not have to have actually graduated, but you must no longer be a student.
  4. The only exception to #2 and #3 is that you may participate if you are currently student teaching.

For example, if you were in the Marching Leathernecks previously, are not this year, but you are still a student, you may not participate in the Homecoming Alumni Band. We would be glad to have you join us once you have finished attending Western.

If you have any questions about this or need any clarification, please contact
