Why are students sitting in TDT?


Sep 2, 2018, 11:31 AM

I sat in TDT and had a student and her roommate sitting next to me. I asked why she was there instead of in the student section. She said it was due to the lottery system they have in place. She wasn’t able to get tickets in the student section for the Furman game. Also said that some students were able to get tickets for all home games while some only got tickets for three games. Said it was easier to buy as she did than to use the system they have in place for the students. There seemed to be a lot of young people in that section (also students?). My daughter, btw, is a sophomore and she wasn’t able to get tickets for the game either. She missed the window of opportunity they give the students. I wonder how many more students miss the games or wind up in different locations in the stadium because of this system

Well, the good news about a “system” is you can learn it

if you want to and not miss your window of opportunity and not get tickets but not show for the game, etc.

Consider it an aptitude test for the students... ??

Yeah the new student tix policy needs a little fine tuning

As in a complete do-over. I haven't heard anyone say anything positive yet, and I don't see at all how it's conducive to getting a strong student section at the the games. Kids either can't get the games they want, they have to buy season tickets in the nosebleeds or they can camp out at dawn for the Hill (which in my opinion is probably the best option). My kid got a ticket from somewhere else yesterday. I think they need to go to a point system and put the process all online.

Yep many large schools use a point system in which points extra points are given for going to less attractive games or non revenue sports or staying the entire game. So students that want to go can.

Students could literally walk over and pick up a hill ticket on Saturday. Plenty were available...
