Penn State Football Offers Special Season Ticket Deal for Recent Graduates

Penn State football tickets can cost you a pretty penny. However, they just became a bit more affordable for recent graduates.

The Recent Graduate Program, launched today by Penn State, allows those who obtained an undergraduate degree from 2010-2014 to purchase up to two season tickets for $300 each for the team’s seven game home scheduled next season.

This is a savings of 35 percent from the normal $460 season ticket price, which also included a $100 donation to the Nittany Lion Club. The $360 Recent Graduate deal includes a $50 donation to the NLC.

The 2,500 tickets allotted for the Recent Graduate Program will go on sale Thursday, January 30 at 8 a.m. They’ll be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. All tickets will be located in the North Upper Deck, in Sections NAU-NLU.

Despite a dip in recent years, Penn State was fifth nationally in average attendance per game last season, its 23rd season in a row holding that honor.

This hasn’t been the first new initiative to help make football tickets more affordable, and thus help improve attendance. Earlier this month, the university announced a variable pricing structure for single games, with tickets as low as $40 for some games. Those tickets will go on sale to the general public this July.
