Band camp, also known as Preseason Camp, happens the week before classes begin at UL Lafayette.
Band Camp dates for the 2019 marching season are Sunday, August 18 through Friday, August 23. ***Please note - Percussion and Colorguard will begin camp on Saturday, August 17th.***
All members of the Pride of Acadiana are required to attend.
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.
Color guard attends one evening sectional per week on Tuesdays from 6 p.m.–9 p.m. Percussion sectionals are every Monday from 7 p.m.–9 p.m., and wind sectionals are every other Monday from 7 p.m.–9 p.m.
