LSJUMB

LSJUMB [lus·jumb, also var., el·ess·jay·yoo·ehm·bee] n. the Leland Stanford, Junior (pause) University Marching Band or Stanford Band for short, a non-traditional, iconoclastic, off-kilter "marching" band known for its often brazen antics that have occasionally gotten it banned from participating in official University events. *usage note: a tongue-in-cheek pause is inserted when saying the full official name of the band aloud to denote that Stanford is not a "junior university" (i.e., junior college), but instead is merely a university named after a Junior (as in, the son of a Senior), in this case Leland Stanford.

OTHER NOTES: The band's mascot is The Tree. The band also has its own "cheer" squad known as the Dollies. The selection processes for The Tree, the Dollies and specific band positions like Drum Major are very notorious. See What made Stanford the most banned marching band in the country (SFGate Article).
