objective 2
Objective 2
  • To determine the main reasons students do not come to games
  • Hypothesis:
    • We believe many students are not aware of the games and lack knowledge of the teams’ records. We also think a lack of school spirit exists among the student body.

      • Student group similar to Orange Krush or Cameron Crazies
