"The idea that a small, private institution can take the Lasting Purpose Principles, apply them in particular areas, such as athletics, and compete on a national level is as exciting as it gets. Last year, sitting in Philadelphia nearly 1000 miles away from my Atlanta home, with my family which included my brother and sister-in-law Drs. Joseph and Caroline Paul, and the rest of the Life University family in attendance, was one of my most enjoyable trips ever taken. Our collective love for the Running Eagles gave our Ruggers an undeniable competitive advantage, and even caused a good amount of awe from the other teams supporters. So much so, that you could sense them wanting to join in on our "Neon-Green Carnival"! Can't wait for the return trip...cheese steaks better watch out!"

"The College Rugby Championships is quickly becoming one of the premier rugby events in the USA. Top competition, incredible stadium with an awesome view, awesome vendors. This tournament is not only a competition, it is one heckuva a celebration. Not only did my Life Alumni have a great time, but I brought my local men's club team along and they had a blast. We can't wait for this year's event!!"
—Dr. J Zimmerman, President of the Life Rugby Alumni and Supporter Association, class of 1987.
Life students, family, and supporters came together to form the best fan base bar none at the 2012 CRC. This was exemplified through the bright green shirts and the overpowering chants lead by the Life student section. It should be the objective of everyone who is associated with Life to attend the 2013 CRC to cheer the preeminent rugby program in America to victory!

2012 CRC was an phenomenal event! There was so much fun, excitement and energy surrounding the entire weekend. The stands were packed. There was Awesome Rugby and plenty of LIFE University and Chiropractic Pride! The Alumni and friends social both Friday and Saturday nights were fantastic. It was great to catch up with old friends and new and to support Life University and LIFE Rugby. For anyone that missed it, they definitely want to make their plans now to attend this year May 31-June 2. Its a weekend not to miss!!!

We had an amazing time, I shouted so hard I could not talk for a week! We told everyone we know what a great event this was. So much so, that our friends from England are coming out this year for the tournament.
