Pride of the North Athletic Bands
The Pride of the North is an organization dedicated to representing and supporting the University of North Dakota at its events and games. They are the premier athletic band program in the upper Midwest, comprising of six outstanding groups within the Pride of the North in which you can be a part – Marching Band, Men's Hockey Band, Women's Hockey Band, the UND Rock'n Rhythm Review Basketball Band, Drumline/Winter Drumline, and Colorguard/Winterguard. They are one of the most rewarding groups at UND, featuring unique and fun opportunities for all who join.
The Pride of the North's central focus is that it exists for its members. Their goal is to create a safe and encouraging environment where all students can continue to enjoy performing and sharing their talents with the public. They are the largest University supported group at UND and are seen live by over a half a million people each year. Countless millions see them each year at UND events on national television. Membership is open to all UND students regardless of year or major. In fact, they have members from almost every major on campus and from every corner of the United States.
UND's first marching band was formed in the year 1883, the year the University of North Dakota was founded. Through 130 years of tradition and excellence, music has been a focus at UND. Symbolizing UND spirit, the Pride of the North continues the tradition of excellence in the new millennium.
