Information About Leadership/Staff App and Registering!

Dear Golden Wave Band,

It's that time of the year! We're already getting excited about the 2016 season. In order to continue the growth of the program, we want each of you to join us once again! Each person is such an important and integral part of the Golden Wave. Your talents, your energy, your loyalty to the University and the program... these are the things that make BUGWB so great. We don't want you to miss out on all those unique opportunities, to miss out on fostering great friendships (both new and old), and supporting our team onto victory.

If you're worried about time, grades, commitments, etc., please email us and let us know. We want to help each of you be successful in your classes while still being able to enjoy all the fruits of the BUGWB experience. We can often work with you to help with schedules or conflicts. The schedule even looks very friendly next year. Don't let fear or anxiety of circumstances not yet unfolded steer you toward missing out! We rarely make the best decisions from a place of fear. You'll never have the chance to have these opportunities or wonderfully exciting experiences after college. Think of all the great times you'll miss if you don't come back. You don't want that! C'mon, LET'S DO THIS!

For those who have an unavoidable class conflict but still want to be in the group, please email Dr. Odajima describing your situation and we will work to get you an override for the class conflict so you can register for the class. Don’t hesitate!
