Ways to Show School Pride

Pride can be defined as pleasure or satisfaction taken in an achievement, possession, or association. Therefore when you hear someone talking about school pride it would mean that they have a fondness, or sense of satisfaction with the school of their choosing. They can display this pride for everyone to see or they can choose to only show their pride internally. Whatever the way, in which people express their pride, you can usually see it all around you. This article will take a look at the ways in which people display their pride. Hopefully by understanding the reasoning behind it you will be able to join in the next time you feel the desire to show your pride.

I grew up in a town that worshiped the local high school. Just the mention of the school and people would go crazy. This pride could be seen in people's front yards and even in the grocery stores. It could at times be overwhelming but when I moved home it offered up a sense of comfort. Even when I attended college in another state people had heard of my tiny town and its prideful citizens.

One way that people in my town displayed their spirit was to wear school colors at every chance that people got. Football was a pretty big deal at my school so when you attended a game you would see nothing but a sea of red. You were also taught to wear red on game days at school or work. Basically whenever it was possible to wear red, you would.

Another way to show your school pride is to get involved in your school. Whether you are attending a college, an online school, or a vocational trade school, there are plenty of resources for you to get involved. You can join a club, attend a sporting event, or even stay involved in the alumni program.

You can also show your pride for everyone to see. Some people chose to decorate their cars or even their yards to show their pride. Many sites and stores will offer you bumper stickers, decals, and even license plate covers. If you want to decorate your home you can get a yard sign or even a flag that can proudly display your love for the school.

We mentioned earlier about alumni programs. These alumni programs are one of the best ways for an individual to display their pride for their school once they have graduated. Alumni tend to move all around the country so there is a chance that you can find a group in an area near you. These events will help introduce you to new people and will allow you to get out and try new things.

Like we said, you can show your pride for pretty much just about any school. So if you are thinking of attending an online school, there will still be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in your school and show people your pride for not only the school but also what you have achieved while there.
