As a freshman, I was told it was a necessity to go to a football game. So I went.
Honestly I didn’t have a lot of Rutgers gear and didn’t want to wear any of the free Rutgers tees I had to the game, so I just wore a t-shirt and shorts (not even school colors). My friends and I met at the dining hall for a late breakfast before the game then headed off on our journey to the football game. After taking the bus from Cook-Douglass all around the other campuses (the weekend buses), we finally reached Livingston where we saw Football Shuttles and hopped off the bus. We received VIP treatment since one of our friends in the group was in a wheelchair and were escorted in our own private bus.
When we arrived, all you saw was a sea of red. Everyone was fully decked out in Rutgers and red gear. People were flooding into the stadium and we joined the crowd. Since we had free student tickets, we had to walk all the way to the other side of the stadium, but the view of the stadium was mind-blowing.
The cheers were loud and the crowd was pumped. As the game went on, we did all the chants and ooed and awed whenever a player was trampled or a touchdown was made. It was an exhilarating experience and I’m proud to cross off another thing on my Rucket List. Go Knights!
