Keep Student Tickets Free at Clemson University

This petition had 9,213 supporters


Starting this coming football season (Fall 2016), the Clemson University Athletic Department and Athletic Director Dan Radakovich plan to start charging students $225 a year if they wish to sit in the lower deck.     But the good news is, this plan is not set in stone; please sign this petition and share it on social media with the hastag #CUWontPay so we can make it clear to the Board of Trustees, President Clements, and the Athletic Department that Clemson students cannot afford to be charged for student tickets!  Reasons why you shouldn't have to pay for football tickets:

  • This year 46% of Clemson students will graduate with over $30,000 worth of debt, students simply cannot afford any extra costs.  
  • Students have never had to pay for tickets before; for as long as Clemson football has existed students have been able to attend games free of charge.  In fact this unique tradition was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal, check out here: http://www.wsj.com/articles/why-clemsons-students-wouldnt-pay-for-sports-1452209496
  • Charging for tickets divides The Clemson Family between students who can afford to go to games and those who cannot, that's just not right.
  • Last year we won the ACC Championship and the Orange Bowl without charging for tickets or implementing an athletic fee, AKA the Athletic Department doesn't need the money, they just see student as an untapped revenue source.  

Again please share this on social media, you have to power to stop this.
