Cheap Sports For All Sorts

As prices rise for all the fun things in life, sometimes it’s nice to have a Student ID.  And this post highlights several of those great opportunities.  Major teams in Ohio and Pennsylvania are advertising great pricing on tickets to students.  We’ll highlight some of them today.

Browns Excursion for Marietta College Students

College Union Board is taking a busload of students up to Cleveland Browns Stadium on October 3 for their division match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals.  A $20 ticket can be purchased in the Student Activities office in Andrews Hall.  The ticket will get you on a charter bus up to the game, a ticket to the game itself, and transportation back to Marietta when the game is complete.  Bus leaves at 9 AM on the 3rd.

This is a great opportunity for MC students to go see an NFL game for a very low price.  Instead of paying anywhere between $30 and $50 in gas for your car and anywhere between $40 to $60 for a ticket, you are only paying $20.  Take advantage while you can.  Tickets are going fast.

Hey guys, I have some music for your listening pleasure today.

A former MC student, Kirstin Repco transferred to another college in Pennsylvania.  She’s a broadcasting major by day and a fabulous singer come night.  I have two videos linked below for you to check out.  She’s also sung a drop-dead beautiful cover of “Listen to Your Heart,” which still plays on 98.5 WCMO every once in a while.
