Support the Pride

WVU and dedicated alumni are working together to pursue a practice facility for the 330-member Mountaineer Marching Band, a much needed upgrade to be located on the Evansdale campus.


Pride Practice Facility

Currently in planning stages, the new practice facility will provide a weather-protected, dedicated rehearsal space and serve as a valuable asset to future generations.


Pride Travel Fund

Since 2007, the Pride Travel Fund has enabled the band to travel to many locations including out-of-state football games and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC.
