Penn Staters Purchase 5,000 Tickets for Military Members

On November 15, Penn State will take on Temple at Beaver Stadium on Military Appreciation Day. The Nittany Lions will be backed by students, alumni, fans, and, through the generosity of Penn Staters, more than 5,000 veterans, ROTC elite, Wounded Warriors, and active duty military personnel.

The “Seats for Soldiers” program allows you to purchase a $35 ticket to the game and donate it to military personnel and their families. More than 5,000 tickets have already been sold for the game, more than doubling last year’s total of 2,500.

Military Appreciation Week will lead up to the game, which includes multiple activities “designed to publicly recognize and express appreciation to all members of our nation’s armed forces, past (veterans), present (active duty and reserve) and future (ROTC) for their commitment to protect and defend our nation.”

More information is available at, and you can call 1-800-NITTANY or visit the BJC ticket center to contribute to this worthy cause.
