About the Band

The University of Toledo Rocket Marching Band is one of the largest and most visible student groups on campus!

  • Is a class, which provides a 1-hr. elective credit that will count toward ANY degree.
  • Performs in the BEST venue in the MAC. The Glass Bowl seats 26,000 and hosts some of the most exciting college football in the country!
