The green college with a dragon as a mascot
College 3 is known as the sports college. Often, the students make up the majority of the sports teams on campus and this is helped by its proximity to the campus gym and tennis and basketball courts. Students of College 3 really enjoy the annual sports event, the Jacobs Games, but are also known to show the artsy side at Art On!, where they always compete for the top places! The students work hard as well, though – the large QSA is full every night with students from not only College 3 but also other colleges coming to make use of the productive environment. College 3 is the green college and the mascot is the dragon, which you can see at many campus events! Like dragons, they are strong and fearless!
