Gone are the days of going to college being a simple experience of just going to class and studying. Today college is a life-changing experience, one that involves plenty of memorable activity away from the classroom.
Athletics and entertainment have become a huge part of what a university experience will provide. What could be better than showing support for the school you are currently attending or have graduated from by attending one of the many sporting events around campus? There are plenty of different choices you have throughout the school year. During the fall rabid fans pack into football stadiums around the country, particularly on Saturdays, to support their teams all the way to college bowl season. The winter brings about the excitement of college basketball, culminating in what many consider to be the ultimate in sports entertainment, March Madness. Spring is in the air next, and college baseball is a fun way to spend your time, especially late in the school year when the College World Series is in full swing.
However, the experience does not have to revolve 100% around sports! College towns are a Mecca for the arts, and you easily can find venues close to campus offering great music, while others will delight you with stellar theatre performances. Whether a student or an alumnus, there will be plenty of great options for you to explore around your school to satisfy that desire to see a live arts performance.
