The Spirit of HPU band and Panther Pulse Drumline are a super fun time! You get to be instrumental in creating school spirit and hype up the crowds with timeout shows. Every minute spent with the pep band is well worth the  investment!

Students should join the Spirit of HPU Bands because it is a great way to show school spirit and pride, make friends, have fun, and play your instrument. The Spirit of HPU Bands helped create the most meaningful friendships I have at HPU. I wouldn't trade the opportunities and experiences I have had through the Spirit of HPU Bands for anything!

It's a great way to get out, play music, and be a part of the amazing student section at games.

Not only is the SOHPU Band a fun, spirited environment in which you get to perform pump up music with friends - the SOHPU Band also serves as a personal stress reliever. Participation in this band gives you the opportunity to escape from class stress, test anxiety, and study rooms in order to take a break to make great music and to just scream at games and have a blast.
