Code Blue brings brighter spirit to campus

Code Blue prepares for the Norfolk State football game by making posters and planning cheers in the basement of Foster Hall. For more questions or inquiries about Code Blue please follow their Instagram @codebluevsu Contributed photo.

Code Blue is the ultimate student hype squad for the university. They attend basketball, football, and occasionally other sporting events to cheer on the Trojans.

Code Blue has been around for some time now and is expected to be at every event to promote and get others involved in the Trojan school spirit. They also work with the Woo Woo’s who are primarily responsible for the crowd enthusiasm at games.

Senior education major India Bundy serves as Code Blue president. She was a Code Blue member for two years before becoming the organization’s leader. As a spirited Trojan, she wanted other freshmen to be a part of something big.

“I want them to be more than just the student section, I want them to be more involved in the campus,” Bundy said.

With very few organizations to join as a freshman, she wanted them to feel a part of something and to come out of their comfort zone.

Bundy’s plan is to expose Code Blue to more than just games.

Code Blue creates chants and dances to bring the Trojan spirit. The creativity of the chants come from the Code Blue members themselves during practice. Some chants are passed down from previous years, so to catch the audience’s attention they come up with more modern chants.

“Sometimes I’ll give them a word, and they’ll just come up with it on the spot,” Bundy said. “It’s a team effort. You just have to tap into that creative mindset.”

Bundy says that there are a few perks that come with being a Code Blue member. Having the advantages of being under SGA there are many networking opportunities. Also having support from the team can be essential when running for certain titles for the university.

Expressing her love for Code Blue, Bundy feels that they bring a brighter spirit to the campus. She believes that Code Blue is a dedicated organization and is always looking for the next big thing.

“When I see Code Blue, my day just gets brighter,” Bundy said. “They bring good energy, good vibes and they are always willing to be a helping hand and bring the hype.”
