Longhorn Band Student Association

We are the Longhorn Band Student Association! The Longhorn Band Student Association (LHBSA) is responsible for organizing student activities within the Longhorn Band.  Our main purpose is to enhance the overall band experience for all involved.  We are a registered student organization with the UT Dean of Students, with membership open to all Longhorn Band members.  LHBSA sponsors social events throughout the year along with the annual Longhorn Band Awards Banquet in the spring. Of course, none of the events described above are possible without fundraising! 

 

Our fundraising initiatives will help us with welcoming new members, membership fees, hosting social events like Holiday Party, providing members with the opportunity to participate in intramural sports, and the annual Longhorn Band Awards Banquet. Through 40 for Forty, your donations will help the Longhorn Band Student Association enhance the overall band experience for every member and will help fund the organization’s annual costs. By making LHBSA membership more affordable through donations, members can make lifetime friendships through our programs.
