That’s why we bring you Campus Connect, where you can catch the latest news in college sports and entertainment to keep on top of the buzz that everyone on campus will be talking about.

What happened last night? What events are coming up today? We have you covered with all of that and more.

The Life of professional sports figures can get quite tedious. From a coach’s standpoint, they work endless hours, prepare for upcoming events, and construct a team just to keep their jobs.

Some may argue its one of the most cutthroat business in the sport.

Entertainment News

Jussie Smollett is allegedly the target of a homophobic attack that is being investigated as a hate crime. Smollett, who stars in the FOX hit show “Empire,” was reportedly hospitalized on Tuesday morning after being attacked by two masked men.

21 Savage is changing the game. The latest rap star appeared on the “Tonight Show” to perform his hit song “A Lot” and it received nothing but positive praise. The song features J. Cole which helps its appeal, but he also throws down some bars that steal the show.
