The Maverick Stampede is Colorado Mesa University's new, high-energy marching band formed in the fall 2012. This exciting opportunity is open to all CMU students. Due to high interest, demand, and popularity among past and future participants, membership in this ensemble expanded quickly to include over 155 members (Fall 2016).  The Maverick Stampede is proud to be known as CMU's largest student organization, and is predicted to grow to even larger numbers in the future.
