The Marching Scarlet Knights is an academic course that meets three days a week in addition to band camp, football games, and exhibitions. Attendance at all MSK events is compulsory, though exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis.

  • Students who have a class that conflicts with the MSK meeting time should contact Chris Keri.

  • Students who are anticipating an absence from a rehearsal/performance should contact Chris Keri.

A student must contact Prof. Nichols (, and Rutgers Marching Band Administration ( in the event of an unexpected absence.
