Student life and comradery is a large part of everybody’s college experience. Other than academics, a sense of community and entertainment is central to colleges. Collegiate sports programs, just like professional sports, entertain crowds that can rival those of professional sports depending on the institution. Students flock to games and matches on campus in their spare time and cheer on the home team. When rival teams come to town, the college community comes together to offer support.
