IN LIGHT OF THE RECENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, COMMUNITIES AND CAMPUSES ACROSS THE UNITED STATES HAVE FELT DIVIDED. AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, THE HOME TO NUMEROUS ANTI-HATE RALLIES, STUDENTS ARE TURNING TO ONE GREAT UNITER. DAILY IOWAN TV REPORTER, AY-ZHUH WIT WAS ON CAMPUS, AND HAS MORE ON SCHOOL SPIRIT.

AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, ONE SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE CONCEPT CAN BECOME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING AT SCHOOL, AND BEING AT OUR SCHOOL. HAWKEYE PRIDE ALLOWS STUDENTS TO BECOME A PART OF SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND EXCITING. TO SUPPORT AND PROMOTE THEIR FELLOW CLASSMATES, AND THEIR TEAM.

WEARING YOUR FAVORITE HAWKEYE GEAR AROUND CAMPUS CREATES A BOND BETWEEN IOWA CITY RESIDENTS, UI FACULTY, AND FELLOW STUDENTS. AND FOR SOME STUDENTS, IT’S SOMEWHAT NOSTALGIC.

SOT: KEELY KINSELLA, UI FRESHMAN

I’VE ALWAYS KNOWN THE HAWKEYES, SO IT I WEAR THEIR GEAR, I FEEL LIKE I’M A PART OF THEM. BLACK AND GOLD, THOSE WERE MY HIGH SCHOOL COLORS. PLUS, I JUST FEEL THE PRIDE FOR HAWKEYES.

TAKE/PKG

HERE ON CAMPUS, THAT PRIDE’S NOT DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN. WITH HAWKS CALENDARS, BUTTONS, AND THREE ON-CAMPUS SHOPS, THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF SCHOOL SPIRIT.

PARTICULARLY AROUND GAMES DAYS, THESE HAWK SHOPS SEE A TON OF STUDENTS BUYING GEAR TO SUPPORT THEIR TEAM.

SOT: ZACH OSTENDORF, HAWK SHOP STUDENT MANAGER

WE SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING IN JUST TRYING TO GET THEIR HAWKEYE STUFF AND JUST TRYING TO SUPPORT THE TEAM FOR THE FOLLOWING GAME.

REPORTER ON CAM: AJA WITT, @ajarenata_witt

SCHOOL SPIRIT IS SAID TO BE ONE OF THE MOST DEFINING ASPECTS OF CAMPUS CULTURE. HERE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, MORE THAN 70,000 HAWKEYE FANS GATHER ON GAME DAYS, AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS WEAR THEIR FAVORITE HAWKEYE GEAR AROUND CAMPUS. THIS SPIRIT CAN LEAD TO AN INCREASED OVERALL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE, AND CREATE MEMORIES THAT WILL CARRY YOU THROUGH TO GRADUATION. THIS IS AJA WITT, DAILY IOWAN TV.
