Professional soccer game draws Lancers

[ Eugene Achim | Banner ]

The Office of Community Life offered students a unique opportunity to attend a professional soccer game between the LA Galaxy and FC Dallas Saturday, March 4.

About 80 CBU students attended the game.

Jesse Chen, junior international studies major, said Community Life provided an opportunity to watch a professional soccer game for a reduced rate.

“One of the main reasons I decided to go was not only because I enjoy watching soccer but because it was at a reasonable price,” Chen said. “I would definitely take another opportunity like this and encourage others to get plugged in.”

Although the home team, LA Galaxy, lost to FC Dallas by a score of 2-1, students said they enjoyed being given the chance to attend the game at a reduced price was worth it.

Morgan Kelly, senior photography major, said she heard about this event from one of her friends.

“I went because a group of friends and I all thought it would be fun to go,” Kelly said. “This was my first time going to a professional soccer game, but I would go to another if they offered it again.”

Aside from friends, those who attended the event were encouraged to go by Comm Life interns and advertisements.

Laney Hantz, senior health science major, said it was a good opportunity to do something she normally would not do.

“I really enjoyed going to the game because it was something a bunch of friends and me could do together that was off campus,” Hantz said. “Sporting events are a great way to connect with people I normally don’t get to talk to.”
