The Marching Scarlet Knights is one of the most dedicated, spirited groups of students at all of Rutgers University.
Playing since 1915, the band has a history of innovation, excellence and most importantly, showing unending support for our Athletic Teams. From our traditional pregame performance, to halftime, to post-game, the Marching Scarlet Knights remain a highlight of home football games.
