Make home athletic events free for students

Unlike students at many other universities, students at the University of Texas must pay to get into home sporting events. The "economical" and all-around ticket for every home sporting event still costs $175 per student every year. This greatly limits the accessibility of games for many students who lack the funds but not the will to attend games.

In particular, students have been criticized for underwhelming attendances at home football games. The student fan base would be much larger and much more energetic if students could attend games for free. This would not only look better for the athletic program, but it would provide a much-desired opportunity for many students.
