Marching Band

Pre-Med Biology Major Miti Dorzeus Shows her Owl Pride

Miti Dorzeus was a part of the first Marching Owls to perform in FAU’s football stadium as a freshman four years ago. As she enters her senior year, she looks back on what it means to be a Marching Owl. 

“I marched in my high school marching band and absolutely loved it. So when I was accepted to FAU, I immediately tried to find information regarding the marching band, and signed up for the class. It was one of the best decisions I made at FAU. I love waking up early every game day to go to practice -- putting on that Marching Owls uniform and marching down the breezeway for owl prowl. I love playing the FAU fight song proudly as the football team walks into the stadium and I love that feeling of excitement that I get every time I am handed new music and drill.   I feel so lucky to be a part of this amazing team of talented people.”

  “Being in a University marching band is more than just the playing and the marching. You become a crucial part of the school's tradition. You make amazing friends, and have the time of your life. Every year you are a part of something special whether starting a new tradition, or passing down old ones to the new members. I would recommend marching band to any student because it is an opportunity to join something bigger than you are and a chance to make amazing friends, all while doing what you love.”
