Membership in the Aggie Band requires full participation in all required activities of the Corps of Cadets in addition to those required of the Aggie Band. Each student is encouraged to participate in the Spend the Night with the Corps program prior to enrollment. Prospective students who participate in the “Spend the Night with the Corps” program and express an interest in being in the Aggie Band will be assigned one of the six band units for the program. A student’s permanent unit assignment will be made at the student’s New Student Conference with approval from the Associate Band Director.
