This comes days after budget cuts led to the university wiping out funding for the marching band in favor of a voluntary pep band operated outside the university's School of Music.
The controversial decision led to a backlash from students and alumni, and now the university is exploring new options to preserve the Marching Colonels.
EKU has also established a committee which will look to find financial resources to support a marching or pep band.
