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.

12 Concerts in the Area Coming Up!

As we get deeper into the summer, more awesome shows are coming to the area.  The Jonas Brothers traveling circus invades Pittsburgh’s Mellon Arena on the 25th (don’t even ask about tickets, it’s been sold out for a while I’m sure), while Dave Matthews Band comes to Blossom Music Center on the 29th.  Classic Rock more your thing?  House of Blues Cleveland has Pink Floyd tribute band Wish You Were Here playing Saturday night, and Lifestyles Community Pavilion has The Doobie Brothers (personal favorite) next Thursday.  The Marietta connection of the day goes to the George Strait concert on the 25th, which has Julianne Hough (here, here, and here) as a supporting act.

As a side note, I added more concerts from House of Blues and Lifestyles Community Pavilion last night, so check out the Regional Concert Guide for concerts further out than what’s shown here.
