Sept. 5, 2007
CINCINNATI - The University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics has announced a new partnership with Cincinnati State, extending an offer of complimentary admission to all UC Football games for the 2007 season. This is an extension of the existing partnership between the two schools via the Cincinnati Pathways program.
"Having the Cincinnati State students join us at Nippert Stadium this fall will be a great way to introduce them to the incredible atmosphere that is generated around college football" says Director of Athletics Mike Thomas. "Cincinnati Pathways is a visionary program and UC Athletics is glad that we are able to support the vision of Cincinnati President Nancy Zimpher and Cincinnati State President Ron Wright. We are all Cincinnatians and this is a great way to generate community support for Bearcats' Football."
To gain admittance to Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati State students must present a valid student identification card at any of the six gates surrounding the venue. Gates open 90-minutes prior to kickoff of each home game, which will be at 6 p.m. for this Thursday night's 7:30 p.m. contest against PAC-10 power Oregon State. The first 5,000 fans through the gate will receive a complimentary Bearcat bobblehead, courtesy of Mike-sell's Potato Chips and UC Athletics.
All students from UC and Cincinnati State are also given the opportunity to bring up to four (4) guests to each game via the purchase of a student guest tickets. These general admission tickets are priced at $5 each and can be purchased at the UC Athletics Ticket Office in the Richard E. Lindner Center, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. or at the box office ticket windows the day of the game.
Cincinnati Pathways is a partnership between Cincinnati State and the University of Cincinnati to offer students an alternative pathway to complete a baccalaureate degree.
