Future Students: Attend a Panther Marching Band Open House!

We are excited to invite high school band students who are considering UNI to attend one of our Open Houses this fall! The events are open to high school juniors and seniors who are current members of their high school band. Open Houses occur at each home football game. We will provide free passes for you and your family to attend the football game and sit with the marching band in seats reserved for our guests. We have also arranged for you to attend rehearsal, take a campus tour, and enjoy a reception where you can meet our director and current band students.

This is a great way to meet our staff and students, see our Pregame and Halftime performances, and to experience the excitement of game day at UNI!

Dr. Galyen: I'm emailing you because I have a few things I wanted to say...

Our students come from all over the state of Iowa and the midwest. They come from large and small bands, competitive and non-competitive bands, and often from schools that don't have a marching band at all. All of these wonderful students come together in the Panther Marching Band to form a family of 330 students that love performing together for the most appreciative audience in the nation.
