With the Men's Ice Hockey team finishing second in the ECAC this weekend, the regular performance season for the Colgate Pep Band also comes to a close. At Friday's hockey game, we invited our seniors onto the ice to thank them for their dedication to the group. The 2014 Raider Pep Band senior class includes Benn Ayd, Erik Barro, Andrea Blatz, Ross Brown, Haley DelPlato, Cate Gropper, Gia Higgins, Beth Mahoney, Rachel Petersen, Tyler Reeve, and Jesus Reyes.

The pep band was featured on the Colgate's official Facebook page this afternoon. Specifically, a photo of the senior class of 1998 was posted. It's a pretty neat throwback and a great shout out to all of the current and former musicians who have represented Colgate as part of the pep band.

Pep band pre-orientation featured on Colgate website

The Pep Band's annual pre-orientation "band camp" was featured in an article on the Colgate website today. Each year, the pep band holds band camp for all new and returning members four days before first-year orientation.

First-year trumpeter Luke Musetti eloquently summed up the experience: 

"I have to say that joining the Raider Pep Band was my best decision since deciding to go to Colgate. The people were so amazing and the music was awesome. Final Countdown AND Seven Nation Army? I admit that I’m already having a better time with this band than I did in high school. They accepted all the freshmen immediately and kept showing us such a great time and filled our days so that we didn’t even have time to feel homesick. They are such amazing people, and I can’t wait for the rest of the year with these guys."
