FIU game free for FIU students

i was nosing around and browsed over on the fiu board today and came across a thread where they were saying that fiu students get in free at the FAU game at Dolphin Stadium with their id.  I dont know if this is valid or not but if it is then what the.  Isnt FAU having to pay for leasing the stadium.  Maybe im missing something here but i damn sure dont want my money going towards freebies for west miami tech students. Anybody know about this.

Some of my friends have been asking…is the game free for FAU students with their ID? Since I'm in the band I never have to worry about stuff like that  ;D

Hey Gang-

Representatives from FIU contacted the FAU Athletics ticket office and arranged to purchase tickets for the FIU students that wanted to attend the game.  Therefore, FIU students do not get into the game for free.  Representatives from FIU are paying FAU for the tickets on behalf of their students.

FAU students get into the game for free with a valid FAU ID- same as at Lockhart and all other regular season home FAU contests.

Yes, the game is free for FAU students.  It is our home game.  I don't know if the game is free for FIU students.  It hasn't been in the past.  If that is true, then I would hope that they are doing the same for FAU students next year at FIU.  It is also possible that FIU is buying tickets and giving them to their students.

Oops, mdawson already answered.  I'm glad they arranged that though.  It will make for a much better atmosphere at the game.  If we take care of business Saturday and FIU wins, this will be the most important Shula Bowl ever.

Re: FIU game free for FIU students

Well, it is not completely free for FAU students because the parking fee I think is $10.00. In addition, FIU is doing all that because their attendance is really low and they need the students to support the team especially now when they have a shot at bowl invitation. I don't think FAU will do the same for its students next year when we play down there at FIU. If FAU is going to do something like that, it would be awesome, but we have always shown up during  previous games. My concern is with FAU providing transportation for the students. LET'S GO OWLS!!!
WE NEED AT LEAST 10 BUSES FULL WITH STUDENTS.
spread the word on campus, this is free!!!!!!!!!!

You'll NEVER get 10 buses full of people to a game whether it be lockhart or Dolphin stadium. The game is free no one cares about the parking fee. Get there early to tailgate you may not even have to pay to get in. There may be 1 bus headed to Dolphin stadium but you'll be lucky if that bus is full. The casual fans doesn't really care to much about a game against FIU

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

If the FIU people are saying the tickets are free then yes, your theory would be correct.

If our attendance is low, than so is FAU's because both schools are hovering around the same numbers. FIU Stadium has been pretty packed this season. Here are the attendance numbers for our last 3 home games:

USF game: 16,717
MTSU game: 15,108
ASU game: 15,106

Also, I'd like to add that the FIU administration sent out information regarding the FAU game. FIU students get in free to the game with their Panther ID's and free bus service from campus to Dolphin Stadium will also be provided. I highly doubt FAU is giving them away for free. More likely than not, FIU Athletics purchased a set amount from FAU for students to go.
