John Knezevic MUHI 1321-003 A New Musical Perspective from the Student Section The event I chose to attend was the SMU football game versus our cross town rival the University of North Texas. The choice was fairly easy to me because in two years on the Hilltop I rarely miss a football game in Ford Stadium. In addition to loving athletics I can honestly say I love hearing the music at the game purely from a spectator’s point of view.

In this particular setting the game on the field is the main spectacle, but the music is complementary to the whole experience. If there was no music during stoppages on the field or at halftime, it would undoubtedly be a very dull and lifeless experience. Before the game starts there is always music playing with the specific intent to get everyone excited and anxious for kickoff.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
