 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
