The sports scene is essentially non-existant here. People will occasionally go to football or basketball games, but because those teams have a tradition of losing (and losing big), most students do not care at all.
I personally like to go to the games because I have friends on the team, all the events are free, and they give out tons of stuff (t-shirts, etc.). However, most people choose to avoid the teams at all costs.
Sports are not a huge part of Columbia. The main sports center is uptown, so it is rather inconvenient to get there. Columbia doesn't have that much sports pride, but going to games to cheer for your friends can be a lot of fun.
