Discounted tickets available for Cleveland State students

From NBA basketball to off-Broadway productions, Cleveland hosts many events attracting large crowds.

Going to college in a metropolitan area means that these events take place close to campus, but the cost of attending them often exceeds a student budget.

Cleveland State University’s “City is Our Campus” program allows students to attend some of these events at a fraction of the going rate. The Office of Student Life runs the program.

Catherine Tiesling, campus life and major event specialist, explains the City is Our Campus program acknowledges the student budget and caters to the financial needs of students.

“I remember what it was like to be on a college budget and this gives you the opportunity to go to a sporting event or a play or some cultural event in downtown Cleveland and enjoy yourselves at a discounted rate,” Tiesling said.

Tiesling and her team purchase tickets from event venues all over Cleveland to offer students tickets to five events each semester at reduced prices. They have relationships with multiple venues in the area, including with the Cavaliers, the Indians and the Browns.

She said the university buys tickets at the group price and then sells tickets to the students at about half the cost they purchased them—never costing more than $25.

At the discounted rates, Cleveland State students have been coming out in large numbers to purchase the select number of tickets.

“All of our ticket sales have sold in less than an hour this semester,” Tiesling said. “We have had really high turnout.”

Tiesling said she believes the turnouts have been high because City is Our Campus presents for a few minutes at each freshmen orientation explaining what it offers for students.
