UConn Athletics: Create A Tuition Fee to Make Student Tickets Free

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Nothing adds more to a college game day atmosphere than a loud and proud student section. Through this petition, we hope to be promoting greater school spirit, higher athletic game attendance, and additional support for our beloved sports teams here at the University of Connecticut. We are petitioning the Athletic Department at our prestigious University to provide free tickets to UConn sporting events to all students of UConn through an additional fee in the student tuition.

Through our research, we have found that 29% of students state that price of ticket deters them from going to games off campus and 50% of students state that they would attend more UConn games if ticket prices were free to students. With this method, we anticipate that it would motivate more students to attend more sporting events and raise school spirit as well as provide a cheaper option to UConn students in the long run than paying for each individual sporting event. Athletics at our great University are “one of the biggest marketing tools an institution has” according to a UConn athletic administrator. In order to remain a prestigious public university in the United States, UConn must continue to support the athletic department in any way possible. With your signature, we hope to build upon the success of this University’s proud athletic heritage and allow for a louder home court in #UConnNation.
