Repping the Illini

Hey guys,

One of the most fun things I do when I’m on campus is to go to Illini sporting events. There is so much that I love about college sports. For starters, you get to see the athletes on campus all the time: in class, out on the town, at the shopping centers, etc. There’s this sense of a personal connection with the players that makes the highs and lows of a season that much more emotional.

On top of that, we have amazing traditions that accompany all major sporting events. School fight songs, dances, and more go on during games. And even when we don’t happen to have a winning season, like this year unfortunately, Illini sporting events still make for a great night out—or in my case, a pretty solid date night.

I hope you all get to experience an Illini sporting event in the coming year.

Until next time,

Kenny
