They say college is about securing your professional success, and there’s a lot of truth to that.
But we all know there’s another reason why you’re hear: It’s time to enjoy the college lifestyle.
And what exactly is that? Sure, there’s partying involved. And yeah, many of us meet “mates” throughout the course of a semester. But more than that, the college lifestyle is about a bunch of like-minded (and like-aged) students breaking free from the restraints of “back home” to celebrate new independence and new unity with a common goal.
Sounds to us a lot like sports.
Perhaps that’s why college and athletics have always gone hand-in-hand: If you’re truly going to better yourself, you can’t neglect the physical, emotional and spiritual growth that comes through disciplined training and competition.
Even the Greeks understood that!
We haven’t even touched on all the other elements of competitive sports that mimic your professional endeavors: Communication, persistence, teamwork – we could go on and on.
So sports is fun, but it’s also an important part of the college lifestyle.
