Pride of Duquesne Keeps Hopes Alive

  A letter-writing campaign, an online petition, the creation of a global Facebook group and even a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article don't seem to be enough to keep Duquesne University's marching band, The Pride of Duquesne, from losing its university sponsorship.
  The university is insistent on replacing the marching band with, according to the Post-Gazette article, "an enhanced pep band."
  Rumors are spreading that, perhaps in protest, soon-to-be-former members of The Pride of Duquesne may continue to perform, practice and compete in the form of a student organization.
