    Dirtydawg, I completely agree with you and the reason I posted on here was to get feedback from others to see if it was just me being outraged by this. I think Reneau wouldn't like the fact that quality students can't be a part of both of these activities.

    I would rather have more band members than more RAs.

    No. You are not the only one that is outraged. Even if you were, it shouldn't keep you from voicing your concerns over this to Dr. Reneau. You all are the types of students one wants at a university-dedicated and loyal. That should be rewarded not punished.

    Doing both should be easy. I've seen it done before, and it can be done now. The individual must excel at both positions to make it work though. Organizations will not tolerate such annoyances for moderate talent. Mediocrity is how one becomes dispensable.

    Many of you have already mentioned the bottom line in this discussion...

    Band is a class. Missing a rehearsal affects your grade. I think this ends the argument.

    I'll admit. When I read the title of this thread, I really hoped it would be talking about paintball or wrestling or something. The feud surprises me. One of the guys who is pretty high up the "housing" chain is Anthony Jackson, an ex-drum major of the BoP. As I read this, I can't help but think that there is NO WAY that Mr. Speed is still the Director of Housing if this feud is going on.

    It also seems like I remember housing being hard up for RAs because there were not enough interested parties for men's dorms.

    I was an R.A. and a Tech band member during my college days.

    Re: Band Vs. Housing

    Band is a grade....that should not be the thought process here. There are people who can do both. I've seen them. The ones I have seen have been some of the best in Tech Band. The fact is Tech band has many members who can barely make it through major scales, and from what I've seen for the most part, the RA people aren't those.

    That being said, if there is TRULY a commitment to making Tech band a big-time college band, I understand.
