SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Let students in for free

During the Iowa men's basketball win against Minnesota Feb. 1, there was a high level of intensity in Carver-Hawkeye Arena — not only from our boys in Black and Gold on the court but from an impressive crowd in the stands behind them.

A great portion of this energy came from one of the largest turnouts in the student section I have seen in quite some time. Why the big draw? The game was free for University of Iowa students. Go to any other home game where you have to pay $10 to $15 for a ticket, and more than half the student section is empty. The Hawkeyes are growing and showing a lot of promise for the future, but they need the fan support behind them.

Our energy in the stands feeds to the players' success on the court. Let's have more free games for the students now. Then, in the future, when the team gets on a roll, those loyal fans will be more than willing to pay to cheer on their Hawks.
