Why I don’t attend UVU sporting events

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There are numerous sporting events going on at Utah Valley University and I have not attended one. It is only my second semester here, there have been multiple events I could have attended. Living the college life, why would I not want to be around the social scene and attend the games? Here are a few reasons why I don’t go to UVU sporting events.

When I got married I realized I needed to prioritize my time better and be more productive. As fun as the games sound, they are not a priority for me. Being a full-time student and a part-time employee makes it difficult for me to find the time to go to games. My husband attends BYU full-time and works part-time, which makes it hard for either of us to be engaged in schools activities.

I have found that when I have a lot going on, my free time is more happily spent resting at home. While I love meeting new people and making friends, I have no desire to be a part of the social scene in college anymore. I think and live differently now that I’m married; there are things that are less important to me now. When I attended Utah State, I went to every sporting event to meet new people and have a fun social life. Since getting married, I have not had the desire to go to the games as a means to meet someone new.

With two big colleges in the state that have already established a name for themselves, if there is time for me to attend a sporting event I will choose to go to the University of Utah games. I am a lifelong Utah fan and will continue to support my team. Although I do cheer for the Wolverines, I find it more enjoyable to attend a sporting event when nationally ranked teams are playing. I support the Wolverines and will cheer for them when they play, but I may not be at the games to cheer them on.
