Northeastern Pep Band
The Pep Band is a highly spirited organization that serves the Northeastern community through its support of the athletic teams and through its participation in non-athletic university and community events. The Pep Band consists of members of the NU community who are dedicated to the quality of the music and a fun atmosphere.
The band is unique among many college bands in that it is officially recognized by the university as a student organization, and operates largely at the direction of the elected student officers (the Council) with support from the Center for Student Involvement and the Student Government Association. However, recognizing the need for professional guidance the Music Department at Northeastern provides a Director to shape the musical and visual performance. The band therefore operates as a collaborative hybrid between a traditional college band that is a unit of the Music Department and an independent student organization.
