Fun Fact:

The Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band is the world’s largest military marching band, with over 400 members. The band eats together and stays in the same dorm. According to the student newspaper, “some of the Aggie band’s maneuvers are so complex that some drill-charting software says that the drills are impossible because they require multiple people to be in the same place at the same time.”
