2008 Blue Band 7

Rookies complete Friday night's Rookie Run during Blue Band Camp to the congratulations of the veteran members of the band. The Run, a traditional part of band camp takes place each night during the Huddle: the rookies are challenged to recite the words to The Nittany Lion. If the group of newcomers cannot complete it to the satisfaction of the returnees, then the group, led by Director O. Richard Bundy (not pictured), must take a lap around the field while singing, as the veterans sing along and cheer them on.
