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 has expanded quickly to include approximately 140 students in the Fall 2014 season, and is proud to be known as CMU's largest student organization! The Stampede is expected to grow to even larger numbers in the future.
