Strike Up the Band

From the first notes of “Go! U Northwestern” there’s one thing you can count on during autumn Saturdays at Ryan Field — the Northwestern University Wildcat Marching Band. With the football season underway, University Archives will host an exhibit of NUMB uniforms and other artifacts, chronicling the band’s history. The exhibit, which opens Sept. 15, will be on display in both University Library and Deering Library.
