Robinson says band class’ return doesn’t mean 100 will be back in 2013

Ever since FAMU began enrolling students in “MUN 1110,” speculation has spread that this means the Marching 100 will be back for the Fall 2013 football season. MUN 1110 is the Marching Band class. It is scheduled to meet during the Summer “B” session (June 24-August 2) and the fall (August 26-December 13).

But Interim President Larry Robinson told WFSU Radio that FAMU might still opt to keep the 100 on the sidelines next year despite the decision to resume teaching students about marching performance skills.

He says he is still assessing whether FAMU has the “right conditions” to let the band take the field again. The interim president does think that the university is making progress toward that goal.

“We’ve put a number of things in place, including a new administrative structure in the department of music, a new student handbook, a revised policy on hazing,” Robinson said.
