He dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) recognize several definitions of the term squad . The first meaning mentioned considers the campus as a hatchery from plants .
In everyday language, it is more common for a campus to be a set of people with some feature in common (as an activity or profession). For example: “This company became big thanks to its excellent sales staff”, “The medical staff of this hospital did the impossible to save all the victims”, “I take pride in the staff of educators we have in this school”.
Given this meaning, we should highlight that campus is a term that is widely used in the world of entertainment. Thus, for example, it is usual that when a play is presented, special emphasis is placed on the staff of participating actors, who will give it quality and that will make many people decide to go to see it.
In the same way, that happens in the cinematographic field. And it is common that a good team of actors become the main claim for the public to decide to go to the rooms to see it. Thus, for example, it has happened with films such as “Ocean Eleven”, which took many people to the cinema because it was starring some of the most important actors of the moment such as George Clooney, Brad Pitt or Matt Damon.
A campus, therefore, is the personal with which has a institution or one entity . In several Latin American countries, the term is especially used to name the set of members of a sports team : “The team of the San Vicente Athletic Club announced that it will not train until the wages owed are paid”, "The coach thanked the squad but said his resignation is undeclinable", “The technical director will travel to Europe with the team”.
At the sports level, the campus is formed by the all the players that belong to the institution , beyond whether they play or not. A team of a club soccer You can count, for example, with 30 players, of which 16 are part of the team that goes to the court in a match and only 11 act as starters or initials.
In this case, on the other hand, it is usual that at the beginning of each season there is a renewal of the campus. And it is that clubs want to get the highest number of victories so they resort to “selling” to players that no longer interest them and proceed to “buy” others who believe they can make the squad have much more quality and, for So, be more competitive.
However, we cannot forget that campus is a term that has another meaning in certain countries such as Mexico or El Salvador. In their case, in both of them it is also used as a synonym for nursery school, to which the youngest go to receive their classes.
In some countries, the campus is also the set of selected animals that belong to a livestock establishment and at set of animals of good breed that are destined to obtain breeders .
