Last week, West Liberty University announced that they have cut all funding to the marching band and pep band as a result of budget cuts that have afflicted the university as a whole. WLU President Stephen Greiner blamed statewide budget cuts and added that it was the music department’s decision.
Since the announcement, many students, alumni, and people from the West Liberty community have voiced their opinions about cutting the marching band. Some say the program is an important part of the university. Many say they are disappointed in the news and are taking their views to social media.
