Vandal Giving Day 2022 Launches April 5 at 10:00 a.m.!
Vandal Marching Band
We need the Vandal Marching Band to keep the music playing!

For over 100 years, the Vandal Marching Band has been the Sound of Idaho, spreading school spirit, rooting on the Vandals and proudly being one of the most recognized and visible ambassadors for the University of Idaho.


Every individual member of the band has made an impact through their participation, dedication, leadership and passion. The Vandal Marching Band owes its current success to each and every alumni. 


Overcoming Challenges

Overcoming the challenges related to the COVID crisis became goal #1, and we did it. Thanks to so many people who stepped-up to support us, our student-musicians received the critical resources they needed. 


Your gift to the Vandal Marching Band during Vandal Giving Day will have an immediate and continuing impact. Your gift will help us update aging uniforms, purchase new instruments, and support marching band students in financial need. Keep the music playing this fall. Please consider a gift to support the students who give a sound and a beat to the brave and the bold. Make your gift today.



The Vandal Marching Band is a proud tradition of the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences.  Learn More...
