PRIDE of New Mexico unveils new uniform

Time transforms many places and people, and in the last 109 years, the New Mexico State University PRIDE of New Mexico Marching Band is no exception. But despite the many changes in physical appearance, the root of its passion remains the same – using music to spread Aggie pride. The band formed in 1909 with just 18 members. During World War II, while many college bands across the country disbanded because of the draft, the NMSU marching band stayed strong, serving as both the ROTC band and the marching band. Now with more than 200 members, the PRIDE continues serving as the spirit of campus and unveiled its new uniform (center) this year.
