The 2018 Reunion Weekend will be September 14-15, 2018. The game is UNL vs. Troy. Game time is not set and now that we have the date, we’ll begin to plan the Friday night pep rally. Please visit our website or Facebook page for updates. Registration should be open after July 1, 2018.
After speaking with many alumni during and after the game this year, we have decided to make a slight change to the alumni band uniform. Red shirts are still a must, but we’re going to require black shorts or pants (skirts or skorts are fine, too). Footwear must be a comfortable, athletic shoe, but does not necessarily need to be white (no flip flops, please). We hope you are already making plans to come back for the 2018 Alumni Reunion! We will let you know in late January/early February what game the Athletic and Band Departments decide upon!

The Band Alumni Association, Inc.’s reunion weekend will be September 1-2, 2017. The game on Saturday is UNL vs. Arkansas State. More information will be provided as it becomes available later this year.
There are three special acknowledgements this year for the UNL Band Alumni. First, it is the 40th anniversary of the Flagline. Second, the first appearance of the Alumni Band on the field came at the BAA’s second reunion, held September 19-20, 1975, with 120 in attendance. Finally, Jack Snider passed away this year. (Here’s a little secret: the half-time music will pay tribute to Jack.) We would like to pay tribute to all of these at our Friday night reunion kick-off party.
To pay tribute to all three of these events, we need your photos. To share your photos, email them as attachments to the appropriate address below. Do NOT write anything in the body of the message as it will be lost. ONLY attachments will upload, so please name photos with the year included. Please have your photos emailed by August 21, 2015, to give us enough time to put them together in slide show. We’ll post the show after the reunion for those unable to make it to the reunion.
