Sports To Get Excited About This Semester

The University of Florida has more than just football.

Sports To Get Excited About This Semester

Gator football season is upon us and, if you are like me, this means it is one of the most exciting times of the year. I love football and will discuss it with anyone who will let me. However, I love a number of other sports as well. The University of Florida has numerous talented sports teams–after all, we are an “everything school.”

So if you are a sports lover like me, here are three sports games, matches and meets you should attend while you still have the chance.

1. Soccer: The Florida women are currently ranked #10 in the NCAA as they recently defeated the reigning national champions. Their next home game takes place on Friday, October 2 at 7 p.m. It is an away football game for the Gators, so make your way to Pressly Stadium and support the women as they take on Kentucky!

2. Volleyball: The Gator volleyball team is currently ranked #2 in the NCAA. They have just completed a long and competitive tournament in Hawaii and a game against FSU. Let’s pack the O’Dome for their next match on Friday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m.

3. Swimming and Diving: Both the men and women just concluded their season opener this past weekend The next home meet will kick off Florida/Georgia weekend (Oct. 30) in the O’Dome at 11 a.m. If you haven’t left for Jacksonville and don’t have class, you should definitely make a trip to the pool.

If you have never been to one of these sporting events before then you should definitely check them out. Go Gators!

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
