Spirit Week

Tyshell Wright

 

        Spirit week in college is where people rep their school colors and participate in different activities to get people involved with their school, show their spirit, love and pride for their school. Moreno Valley College should be no different than any other school. Yet at this community college there is no school spirit. The students don’t show pride in their school at all.


           Most first year college students are excited to experience what spirit week is like at a community college. But the whole week nothing happened. Not one event. No one sported their school spirit. There was no school merch being sold. No games that people would be interested in. No performances or anything from different organizations like dance or band. Nothing stood out. There was absolutely no school spirit.

   

         No matter what type of school the college is, there should be some type of school spirit. After talking to Jalen Baker, majoring in plastic surgery, he said that he doesn’t even like attending MVC. “It’s wack and very draining nothing interesting happens.”


Many students don't like how boring and blank the campus is. It makes them not want to show off the college. The campus gives them no motivation to be there. It's become more of a “get in, get out” type of school. It shows that community colleges are not as fun as a UC or any other 4-year school because the students have no school spirit.


       School spirit is needed at Moreno Valley College. It brings students together and makes them proud of the school they attend. Showing the students that they matter is important for any school and it starts with school spirit.


Some ways MVC can improve on their school spirit is to actually have events, games to play, and prizes to win for the week that they claim as “spirit week.” Make MVC unforgettable. Get people more involved. Make the school a fun place to be, so students can take a break from all the work they have to get finished. If the faculty does not put an effort towards school spirit, how are the students expects to have any?
