JSU Marching Southerners

Frequently Asked


Do I have to have a scholarship to attend JSU, march in the Southerners, or be a music major?
No. Qualifying for a JSU scholarship (Band, Academic, etc.) will lessen the overall cost of attending JSU. You can still fully participate in the Marching Southerners, concert ensembles, etc. without being on scholarship.

Do I have to be a music major to march Southerners?
No. The Marching Southerners are made up of a very diverse group of Majors and Minors from around campus.

I can’t make it to JSU for the posted audition times! What do I do?
Contact the band office as soon as possible, and they will work out an alternate audition for you.
