High school is fun but most people consider college as the years where they had the most fun. It is during those four years, or more for some, when they had the most trouble but at the same time learned the greatest life lessons from those troubles. The colleges go through so much in order to give the best for their students.
Those who run colleges know that they have work at giving the best quality when it comes to everything student related because college is a turning point for the youth. It is a time when they will discover what they really want in life and it is also a time of building long lasting relationships.
These relationships are formed in the classroom, organizations and sports teams. The little cliques formed forged a bond that can be everything to a student. These groups may fight against each other and yes these fights can get worst but there will be those times when everyone is brought together for one day or for one night.
Those days or nights are game days or game nights. More than academic contests and other competitions, sports is what usually unites an academic institution like college. For one there are a lot of schools who offer sports scholarships so usually these sports stars serve as inspiration to the rest of the student population. Thus watching them play and give glory to the school enforces that belief that yes, dreams do come true.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is the association that is in charge of the different sports activities of the colleges of America. Basketball is probably one of the more popular sports that they organize. Most NCAA stars go on to become big stars in the National Basketball Association (NBA). To show support for your NCAA teams, fans come in any NCAA sports apparel.
It can be a jacket, hats or caps. A normal way to go about it is to wear a school shirt but some avid fans go as far as wearing a replica jersey of their favorite players. All of these in the name of school spirit. In the end, the winner gets the bragging rights so it will come as no surprise if even the most apathetic of all the students will go out of the way to take part in all the hoopla just for a day or a night.
