Orange Krush is back!

On Friday night, myself, my sister and my friend Kirby went to the first basketball game included in our Orange Krush student passes. We were ecstatic as the Illini played Southern University’s Jaguars and won 102-55. I don’t think there is a better seat in State Farm Center than the ones located in the Orange Krush student section. With every shot made and rebound gained, our student section shows that our fan support runs deep.

This is my third year of being a member of Orange Krush and it is more fun than it has ever been before. This year, my freshman sister is attending as well and found that she loves the Krush experience too. Every time we go to a game, we have a fantastic time because of the amazing support of our student section. Each of the students dancing, chanting, and singing during the Krush experience add to a great time. A sea of orange is sure to show up to each and every game and cheer on the Illini.

Being a member of Orange Krush is an essential part of my experience at the University of Illinois. Whether it’s  a snoozy Sunday afternoon or a snowy Wednesday night, if there is a Illini home game, I will most likely be there. It is a great place to be if you want to get away from studying or homework in general. Plus, if you have friends in Orange Krush, it is a great place to meet up with them as well.

My message to every future Illinois student is clear: join Orange Krush. You won’t regret it.
