 Welcome RU Bands Alumni, young and not so young.  RUBAA's mission is to support and advance the Rutgers Undergrad Bands programs.  This assistance typically comes in the form of the two $1500 annual scholarships awarded to Marching Band members, contributions to MGSA through the efforts of RUAWS (the alumni wind symphony) and providing the alumni pep band at basketball games when the undergrads are not available.  These activities have made RUBAA one of the most recognized and respected alumni organizations at Rutgers.  With the marching band's 100th anniversay on the horizon (2015) and the marching band having to deal with the latest round of budget cuts we are going to have to increase our efforts...more to come regarding these efforts.    Bill Paliwoda, RC '83

2014 Homecoming Set for Nov 1st Against WISCONSIN 12:00 Kickoff! As we are now officially a part of the Big Ten Conference, we are also subject to some B1G growing pains. We were unable to obtain a group rate for the game but Athletics is offering us end zone tickets at non-dynamic pricing of $85/ticket. If you wish to attend the game, please contact as soon as possible

Be sure to mention that you are a member of the Alumni Band as he will need to cross check with our member list to purchase at this price.  Parking will not be sold in advance and will be $20 at the RAC on the day of the game.

We realize this is a bigger jump in price than most of us could have anticipated.  The Eboard will be exploring options to have a game viewing gathering and/or possible performance opportunities on or near campus.
