Marching and Pep Bands

Just think of the friendships formed, the skills gained, and the competitive spirit that came with your band experience in high school, and multiply it; that’s what you’ll experience in the concert, pep, and/or marching band at BVU.

Buena Vista University's marching and pep band program allows you to participate in an intercollegiate athletic band experience like no other in the American Rivers Conference. Our lakeside football field and jam-packed fieldhouse provide the game day experiences you’re looking for in college!

“The program will serve as yet another platform that will provide young people the opportunity to come to BVU and become involved in something that’s really of interest to them and that they’re passionate about.”

BVU President Joshua D. Merchant
