Upon my arrival at the College Football Hall of Fame ; I walked through the double sliding doors and was greeted by a young lady wearing college football fan attire. She advised me to register for my all access pass, telling me that it would boost my overall fan experience while I visited . After I finished my registration process I stopped and took a look at the huge wall made from football helmets from every program in the nation and somehow while I was registering they found out the school I was representing which was Georgia State and they had our GSU football helmet lit up so I could see it in the midst of the hundreds of other helmets on the wall. I then proceeded to walk up the flight up stairs to the 1st floor of the museum ;which was filled with memorabilia and trophies from the National Championship , Hiesman , Doak Walker awards. Something that intrigued me was that every time I got close to a screen , highlights and pictures of GSU football started to play because it recognized my badge that was assigned to me at registration; I found this really cool and unique. After I finished looking at all the different trophies and jerseys from college football legends ; I went into the theater room and watch a 15 minute long video about how each quarter in the game of football translates to different stages in life and how to overcome adversity and deal will all the sudden changes life throws at you. Once the video concludes you exist around a staircase on to the 2nd floor which is how this comes to an end as I only will be using the 1st floor for my BED.
My experience at The Varsity was great, It never fails every time I go ;I enjoyed the atmosphere and of course the food. The staff is always helpful and taking orders swiftly. The purpose of my trip this time wasn’t just for the great eats , but I had to complete a Built Environment Description for my GSU English 1102 class; which was me basically describing the environment (The Varsity) very detailed.It may not make any sense when reading or you may feel that I’m “doing too much” but once you understand the objective of the assignment everything will make perfect sense. I didn’t stay too long this time ; only for about 25 minutes ; I just ordered my food , took notes, and ate as quickly as possible . Ill always be back because its truly legendary to the scenery and culture of the city of Atlanta.
After the completion of a simple art project, Hooks reflects on how race and class realities would have drastically altered the architecture of her “dream home” if the assignment was not based solely on imagination. She continues on to realize that the African Americans she knew had very little control over spatial inequalities due to their socioeconomic stauses. Although this was the case, The cirscumstances of them being limited to these fixed locations did not halt them from creating and expressing their culture with what they had.
