The choice of seeing an NFL game or a college football game.


If you had the chance to see either an NFL game or a college Division 1 game, which would you pick? There are many differences between seeing an NFL game or a college game and here are a few.

The Pricing

The average price of an NFL game is around 100 bucks for crappy seats. You're looking at a few hundred dollars to sit closer to the field. Best advice is to see preseason games. For around 85 bucks, you can have lower level seats for most stadiums.

College is a bit different. Most students get first pick of seats in the student section but they are all reasonably priced seats for students. Alumni get discounts on season tickets, and the non seasoned ticketed seats get sold to the public. The average cost is, again, around $100, which is not that bad but depending on the game, and who the opponent is, will effect the cost of seats of the game.


Going to see a college game is electrifying. At any Penn State University game there are about 100,000 people in the stadium. There is nothing like sitting in a stadium with that many people chanting "LET'S GO PSU!" It really makes you proud to support that team. Now, if you're not familiar with the different chants that the crowd makes, no worries, it's really easy to catch on. You don't go to college games just to see a team play football, you go for the experience, and entertainment.

NFL games are more serious. These fans are older, and more willing to scream and curse you out of the stadium if you're not supporting the home team. Take caution with seeing an NFL game and not supporting the home team. But if you do support the home team, then you are welcomed with open arms. No matter the game being played, the high intensity of the team brings the stadium to life and watching your favorite professional players play is like a dream to some.

Final conclusion:

It's up to the individual to choose either an NFL or an NCAA game. But if you want the experience of witnessing a truly entertaining game with the fans, then college is your go to, but if you are into seeing raw talent play on the field then NFL is your choice.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
