Georgetown Hoyas fans hoping to tweet or browse Snapchat during the Jan. 20 showdown with the rival St. John's Red Storm at Capital One Arena better make sure they're in the right section. 

Section 118 of the arena will be an "Actual Reality" section for that game. Cellphones are banned and fans are required to check their devices before taking their seats. 

Fans must obtain paper tickets ahead of the contest, and the school will distribute name tags to "encourage face-to-face conversation." A letter/postcard writing station and a Polaroid camera will be available for those looking to document their afternoon outside of social media platforms. 

As ESPN.com's Dan Murphy explained, approximately 50 seats will be reserved for the "Actual Reality" section, but more may be added depending on fan interest.
