Wiz Khalifa Concert Ticket Information Released

Ticket information for Wiz Khalifa’s appearance at the Bryce Jordan Center on April 26 was announced this afternoon. The concert, which will also feature Mac Miller, will cost Penn State students $28.50 and go on sale 12:00 pm on February 28 at the BJC, Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State tickets Downtown, and the HUB.

Tickets for the public will cost $37.50 and can be purchased starting March 18.

The concert is supporting the “Be Easy” Paraplegic Fund, which was started by Penn State freshman Jordan Rolon of Alpha Gamma Rho. Rolon started the non-profit after his friend incurred massive medical costs dealing with paraplegia from a car accident in 2010. His friend, Ben Alessi, faces $600,000 in expenses.

According to the official press release, Rolon is who Penn State has to thank for getting Wiz here– there was concern about the date being to close to Lil Wayne’s concert here, but lobbying on behalf of the non-profit changed the organizer’s mind.

A portion of ticket sales for Khalifa’s spring concert will be donated to the fund. Rolon is also planning a benefit raffle to be held after THON. The items include Tim McGraw and Faith Hill customized posters, autographed Zac Brown Band merchandise, Jesse McCartney gear, and more.

You can also donate directly to the fund here.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
