U of M Students Angered By Ticket Bundling Policy
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A student leader at the University of Minnesota is trying to change a policy that forces students to buy football season passes to get tickets to other sports.
The Student Senate is set to vote Thursday on a resolution drafted by student senator Kyle Kroll that asks the administration to end the ticket bundling. The second-year law student says it is unfair that Gopher Athletics is making students buy more tickets than they want or can afford.
Senior Associate Athletic Director Chris Werle says the new practice, which began this summer, is a way to reward the best U of M sports fans. Students who purchased the football season pass got first pick for other sports.
Reports say the university used to allow students to buy tickets for individual sports.
