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!

There are lots of different ways to show off your school spirit and one of the easiest ways to do so is by wearing some college gear! The best part about this is that there are so many different kinds of college gear that you could wear during football season too. T-shirts are very common where they feature your school name and your mascot too, but there is so much more too.

Since football season occurs in the fall and the weather starts to get colder during this time, purchasing a hoodie or two also works for showing off your school spirit and it will keep you comfortable and warm during those cold games. 

Many students also like to paint their faces the school colors, wear some fun face stickers, and lots more. There are a lot of stadium-ready outfits that you can make, but going with a simple pair of jeans or shorts with a t-shirt or hoodie that shows off your school colors and mascot is all you need!

It is also important to note that you can never have enough college gear. If you’re thinking about getting some t-shirts, hoodies, jerseys, hats, or whatever else that you need, then why not purchase everything you need off of the OCM website! The OCM website is perfect for ordering all of your fan gear, and even anything you may need for your dorm.

If you purchase directly through your school’s site through OCM, a portion of each dollar spent on college gear and more goes directly back to your college’s organizations. What better way to support your college than purchasing college gear for a football game and having the money you spent go back to your school!

Just search your school in the search bar and get shopping!

Hosting or Going to a Tailgate

While showing off your school spirit while attending football games is important, showing it outside of the football stadium is also important. A great way to do this is by volunteering for charitable organizations, youth organizations, tutoring, or even helping out during campus events, such as the football games is a great way to show off your school pride.

Not only does it show how much you love your school, but it is also a rewarding experience in the end. Volunteering your time for a good cause, to help others in your community, or even just to help out and get others pumped about the next football game is one of the best ways to represent your school and show your school spirit! 

Make a Poster or Banner to Take to the Game

Another great way to support your football team is by making a poster or a banner to take to the game with you or hang up in your room! Image courtesy of CBS Sports. 

Is it raining, or really cold outside and you are planning on missing the football game? As much as you don’t want to, sometimes it’s for the best. Instead of risking getting sick from being out in the cold, why don’t you instead do something indoors while watching the game, such as making a poster or banner that you can hang up in your dorm room, or to even take with you to the next game!

Making posters or banners to support your school or team can not only be a great way to show off your school spirit, but it can also be an amazing creative outlet to relieve some stress too! Being creative and supporting your team by making posters is a great combination to give you something fun to do while supporting your team!
