1. Virtual Events

The pandemic has altered the way students interact on campus and with their classmates. Taking things virtually helps us remain socially distanced and protecting one another. One way to show your school spirit is to participate in virtual events.

In and around campus, after class, find a patch of grass and set up shop with a picnic blanket, laptops, and friends. Enjoy numerous online presentations and follow them with a discussion. Do you have any school stickers on your laptop?

2. Campus Clean-Up

What is the terrain like on your campus? Does it stay tidy, or is there something left to be desired? Schools and Universities get a ton of foot traffic that sometimes leads to trash and debris.

A great way to show school spirit is to take it upon yourself to clean up the campus. Grab some friends, mask up, and wear your school clothes. Not only will you feel good doing so, but you’ll also be helping so many people in the process.

The positive energy you and your buddies spread will be infectious. People will pick up on your good deeds and want to participate as well! Before you know it you will be leading a clean-up committee!

3. Create a Mural or Sign

If you’re searching for more college spirit ideas, why not create a mural or sign? Get a few of your friends together and draw or paint on a large canvas or mural. When you’re done, you’ll want to hang it from your dorm or apartment window.
