The RiverHawk Marching Band is one of the largest, most-spirited student organizations on the NSU campus. Comprised of students that represent nearly every academic discipline on the NSU campus, the RiverHawk Marching Band performs at all home football games, appears in many Tahlequah parades, and provides entertainment at many campus pep rallies and similar events. In addition, the band does exhibition performances at several high school marching contests per year. Membership in the marching band is open to all NSU students. There is a required pre-season rehearsal camp that occurs before classes start in the fall semester. Once classes start, the marching band rehearses Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:30-5:30 in the fall semester only. The RiverHawk Marching Band is under the direction of NSU Director of Bands, Dr. James Adams.
