What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How You Can Show Your School Spirit

There’s no better way to feel truly at home while you’re at school than by getting into the school spirit. If you’re a sports fan, this may seem like second nature to you, as you already want to show off your team’s logo wherever you may go. But if this is your first time at school, jumping in with your fellow students to support your school is one of the best things you can do. Not only will your dorm or apartment look awesome with all kinds of school decor, but your wardrobe will also benefit from team apparel. Going to school games or pep rallies is also  a great way to make new friends. There’s nothing quite like having the school body cheering on the football, basketball, or any other sports team! 

So what are the best ways you can look the part this year and really step up your school spirit game? By checking out what the OCM Fan Shop has of course! These are some of the most popular items for sale, you’re sure to find something you love.

Shirts

You just can’t go wrong with your basic shirt. Shirts are one of the most popular and adaptable ways to add a little school spirit to your everyday attire. You can choose to go casual, with a t-shirt, or get a little more formal with a polo shirt. The basic t-shirt is something that will never go out of style, and OCM has both mens and womens sizes, so you’re definitely going to find something that suits your style, and is comfortable! 

A polo is also another great option for when you want to dress up a little more, say for class, a presentation, or even when you have a golf game scheduled. Polo shirts are also great to wear when your parents or other visitors stop in. You can show off your sophisticated side without sacrificing your school pride!

If you’re like most college students, you have a favorite hoodie. Sweatshirts are just the right amount of cozy comfort, making them a perennial favorite with college students all across the country. Make your wardrobe complete with the addition of a sweatshirt--whether it’s a zip up, a pull over, or your basic crew neck. Sweatshirts are the way to go whether it’s to a Saturday morning tailgate, your 3pm physics class, or to a movie night in with friends. 

Hats 

Another easy way to include a little school pride into your everyday wear is with a hat. Whether you just rolled out of bed and want to cover up that bedhead, or you’re trying to keep the sun’s rays out of your eyes, a ball cap with your school logo is just what you need. Almost as versatile as t-shirts and hoodies, a ball cap is a must-have for any college student just trying to make it through a long day of class. 

But OCM’s Fan Shop doesn’t just have ball caps, they also offer warm, knit hats for those chilly days on campus! There is no accessory you’re going to appreciate more on those Saturdays in November when you’re outside cheering your football team onto victory. Stay warm and show your school pride at the same time!

If you’d like something that really stands out, consider picking up a bucket hat with your team’s logo! No only do these hats protect your face from the glare of the sun, they also offer shade to the back of your neck--which is necessary for any outdoor sporting event!

Jerseys

No list of team apparel would be complete without a mention of team jerseys. If you’re serious about showing your support for your fellow student athletes, then you can’t go wrong with a jersey. Whether you’re headed to the football game, basketball game, baseball game or just for a quick bite to eat at the cafeteria, a jersey is almost always the right choice. If you plan on attending a game with a bunch of friends, see if you can coordinate it so that you’re all decked out in jerseys to really show your school spirit!

Must-Haves for Game Day 

Whether you’re watching the game on TV, or heading over to the stadium, make sure you have some of these essentials!

Now that you’ve got yourself and your friends all decked out in Fan Shop gear, it’s time to turn your attention to game day gear! Whether you’re getting together to watch the game in a friend’s dorm or apartment, or you’re all heading over to the student section for the game, make sure you have some school spirit decor as a part of your day! 

Game Day Gear

If you’re heading over to a tailgate, make sure you ask the host if there’s anything you can bring to help out. No one wants to show up empty handed, but it’s always best to check first to see if they need any of the basics like cups, plates, utensils, or napkins. They might have a specific request for a particular kind of beverage, snack platter, or dip that they want to make sure is a part of the festivities. If this is the case, you can’t go wrong with everyday essentials in your school’s colors! Let everyone know that you’re the fan that goes the extra mile to include school spirit in whatever form you can!

Another great way to help your tailgate stand out is with a large flag. There’s no easier way for you to give directions to eager tailgate goers than to have a large, easy to see flag to make sure they find it okay. If you’re not heading to a tailgate and prefer to watch the game on TV, you can still make your school’s flag a part of the show! Just make sure to hang it up where you plan to gather to cheer your team onto victory. The best part is flags look awesome in dorms or apartments even in the off season! 

Now that you have your decor, snacks, and beverages, it’s time to enjoy hanging out with friends before the game starts. Whether you’re outside at a tailgate, or setting up shop in your friend’s dorm room, make sure there’s music and plenty of games. You’ve got to make sure you’re ready for the big game, so don’t let the energy level fall flat! Including a wireless speaker and fun games like cornhole, jenga, or connect four is a great way to countdown to game time.

This year, make sure to stock up on officially-licensed apparel and gear at OCM’s College Fan Shop. There’s no easier way to show your school spirit than with a hoodie, hat, t-shirt, or flag sporting your school’s logo.
