Florida A&M University's music department toured South Florida this past weekend to recruit high school students and promote its anti-hazing stance. After their drum major Robert Champion of the Marching 100 was beaten to death in 2011 during a hazing incident, the university is trying to get young musicians to feel safe at their institution.

Florida A&M's interim president announced Thursday that he was lifting the suspension of the school's famed "Marching 100" band.
The band had been suspended since November 2011, following the hazing-related death of one of its drum majors.
In a statement, interim President Larry Robinson said the re-institution of the band comes after "sweeping changes" that address hazing.
