    Student Tickets Going Fast

    For any students out there that haven't purchased season football tickets yet, and I'm sure there are some out there, I would recommend getting on it as soon as you can. As a member of SALC that had to sell tickets ealier this year, we just got word from the athletic department that there are less than 700 season tickets remaining for students.

    Despite contrary belief, there is actually a limit on the number of season football tickets the AD will sell. I would think that a decent ammount of the incoming freshman who didn't already get tickets during orientation would buy them during Destination Iowa State or the first week of classes. So if you're an older student that still wants to go to all the games (which you should), I would just order the tickets now and put the charge on your U-Bill so you don't get punked by some freshman. Hopefully with all these record ticket sales, the student section will surpass the rowdiness of last year

    Good to hear.

    I bet if they do sell out there will be a large number of hillside tickets sold soon afterwards. Remember kids, that wall jump can be tricky after a few beers.

    They do actually and are doing the same for b-ball this year. Ticket sales haven't been the problem. Students actually showing up has been, however.

    I think you'd be okay. I would just say don't wait until after classes start or a few days before the first game, because I know plenty of people that have done that in past years. Is there a reason why you don't want to do it online though? I feel like it is much easier and convenient, and considering there are no more paper tickets for students, I don't see why anyone would have to order them in person. Unless you're paying by cash or check, but you can also put it on your U-Bill online if that's easier.
