Basketball games are a must for any GCU student and it goes without showing that we have a great student sections. The secret to it? School spirit and some creative ideas.
We have gathered all the best outfit ideas so that you can start shopping for purple for your next game.
Purple Face Paint
Paint your face purple, add cute dots across your face or throw on a simple heart on the cheek. It’s one of the key staples to showing your lope pride.
GCU Game day Shirt
Granted, you will probably have dozens of these by the time you graduate, but you can never have too many GCU shirts. Make sure you wear one at a game.
Purple Knee Socks
These are easily accessible at almost any store and make any outfit scream GCU. Pair it with a purple shirt, some face-paint and you are ready for the game.
Carry Around Some Stampede
Need a pump of caffeine before? Grab some stampedes from Grand Canyon Beverage Company and pass some out to your friends. It’s the go-to drink for every basketball game.
Get a Purple Bandana
Another cute outfit staple that can be worn in your hair, around your neck, on the arm and on your leg.
This is more geared toward the girl lopes, but the guys can totally partake in this too! Just another fun hair accessory to adorn and can be bought at The Lopes Store in front of the Union.
Just Wear All-Purple
Purple seems to be a theme around here and if need be, just wear all purple to represent our Lopes at the game. Whether it be purple pants, shoes or nail polish, you will fit right in with everyone and have a great time at the game.
