Ben Przybylski is a junior music education major from South Bend.

“I love being a part of The Ball State “Pride of Mid-America” Marching Band! There are countless fond memories I have from the marching band including all the section nights with the trumpet section, the grand pause in the ‘Thanks for the Memories’ show, and having a fun time energizing the group with the leadership team. POMA is my second family and I met a lot of great friends that I know I’ll have for life!

“One piece of advice I would give any prospective Ball State student is if you know what you want to do, be passionate in your pursuit of that path and don’t let anybody convince you to turn away! It took me two attempts to get into the School of Music at Ball State, and I was met with both support and adversity. Keep your head up, work hard, and achieve what YOU want to do!” 📸 @dzellidesign
