Are there any HBCUs with color guard teams?

One of the things I love about high school is color guard, and I’m hoping to find an HBCU that has a color guard team I could join. I haven’t found much info online. Does anyone know which HBCUs have color guard?

Absolutely, there are HBCUs with fantastic color guard teams! My niece was in a similar situation and found her place at Howard University. They have a great marching band and color guard team. I also know that schools like Bethune-Cookman University, North Carolina A&T State University, and Southern University and A&M College are known for their marching bands and color guard enthusiasm.

I'd recommend reaching out directly to the band departments of the HBCUs you're interested in. This direct approach helped my niece connect with the right people before she even applied! It's a great way to get specific questions answered and even potentially set up a visit to see the team in action if that's a possibility for you. And remember, even if an HBCU doesn't advertise their color guard team online, they might still have one – it never hurts to ask. Best of luck in finding the perfect fit for you!
