The Towson University Pep Band has been lauded as one of the best bands in the CAA conference with its commitment to musicianship, sportsmanship, and entertainment.  The pep band is a group that forms during the winter and spring semesters and performs at all of the home basketball games and other events on Towson University’s campus.  The band performs at both men’s and women’s basketball games and accompanies the teams to the CAA tournaments.


Like the marching band, the pep band is a class that is taken for 1 credit that can be applied to your degree.  In addition to school credit, a $20-$30 stipend is given to the members for each game that they attend.  For more information on the scholarships, see the Pep Band Handbook, or TUMB Scholarship Information.
