Band camp, also known as Preseason Camp, generally occurs the week before classes begin at UL Lafayette.
This year's camp will be Friday, August 14th, 2020. All members of the Pride of Acadiana are required to attend. Section Leaders are also required to attend our Leadership Camp, which will be Thursday, August 13th.

Dates, times, and rehearsal locations for camp may change. Please watch your email and this page for details!
To all incoming freshman: you are exempt from attending the “Cajun Connection” portion of your UNIV 100 course, though you will need to make up the missed time via an online seminar. Your instructors will be informed of your membership in band and you will be excused from attending UNIV 100 on those days.
Classes & Rehearsals
After the semester begins, rehearsals take place on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 12:15–2:15 pm in the fall semester only.
Following the first Monday class meeting (August 17th), each regular Monday class meeting (12:15-2:15pm) will become a sectional rehearsal. Colorguard and Percussion will meet every Monday, while Brass and Woodwinds will alternate each week. Unlike previous seasons, there will be no evening sectionals.
If you are in the Pride of Acadiana, you earn course credit. If this is your first or second year in the marching band, register for AMUS 152. If this is your third or fourth year in the Pride, register for AMUS 352.
