Many people ask us about a Facebook page for Marching Chiefs. At this time, we do not have an official Facebook page, but that may change in the future.

As you may know, there are a few “Marching Chiefs” fan pages on Facebook. These are not official and not endorsed by Dr. Dunnigan, Dr. Plack, the College of Music, or Florida State University.

If you follow one of these, be aware that you will find nothing official on these pages.

If and when we set up an official Facebook page, you will find that information (and a link) here on our website.
