I saw the billboard "FAU EXPO" on 95 between Lake Worth and Boca on Friday afternoon and wondered it this was high school event I had heard about Went home and googled it and quickly got the answer. Check this out and don't forget look at the video:
Then, there was an oddball entry, so I checked that one out too:
Whoever is doing this is getting some deep coverage. I would expect this to expand dramatically over the next 2 weeks.
Anyway, good to see. Thought you might be interested.
Opinions on… 20th street or the EXPO?
USMCOWL saidI like that, on the job for almost six seven months, holding a expo, plus showing off our beautiful stadium trying to change the perception of the commuter college idea. Hopefully he will bring in some businesses and local leaders to expand on the 20th street idea. I'd like to get other opinions on this.

This EXPO is a FANTASTIC idea and I hope students take advantage of it.
Kinda curious how this works because I thought we were restricted in handing out free passes en masse like this to get people in the stadium.
Though it did talk about their parents… hmm
Don't see as much advantage of putting these students in the east stands where there aren't as many people or the corners of Hootville… those are "safe areas" for not disturbing genuine ticketholders but that just separates them from everybody else.
I have been to several "student visit weekend" games at a major university with my kids and we were never put in to the student side. There was always an area dedicated for that purpose.
There was a question above about "free tickets". I don't remember what we did - I think that there was an all inclusive charge for the weekend, but there is no way it covered the full price of the tickets. Money must be coming from a different pot and transferred.

This could be huge if the football team is any kind of exciting this year. If we get blown out then all these kids will walk away saying "well, it is JUST FAU…"
