After the Office of Judicial Affairs found the Big Red Marching Band had instances of incoming section leaders taking shots of barbecue sauce or other condiments, the organization was issued a written reprimand and had to create a transition guide.
The Cornell Big Red Marching Band is certainly a unique organization. Not only are they the largest student-run group in the Ivy League, but they are the only traditional Ivy marching band, spanning a history of well over a century. Despite these distinguishing qualities, there is little known about the inner workings of this welcoming organization. This is what I aimed to seek out.
