Penn State Offering Employees Game Day Ticket Incentive for Opener Against Ohio
Penn State is offering its employees a specialty ticket package for the first home football game of the Bill O'Brien era Saturday in an effort to express gratitude for their support, perseverance and dedication exhibited over the past several months.
According to an email sent out to all staff by Susan Basso, Associate Vice President for Human Resources, the office of Human Resources, in conjunction with the Athletic Department, is offering an "employee appreciation opportunity."
Tickets go on sale at 8 a.m. Monday and any full-time employee with a valid university ID card will be eligible to purchase an opening game package for the employee appreciation price of $79.
The package includes two game tickets and two $10 concession vouchers to see the Nittany Lions take on Ohio at noon Saturday in Beaver Stadium.
The promotion is on a first-come, first-served basis and will run through 6 p.m. Wednesday.
"The commitment and resolve of our faculty and staff have been tremendous during the most challenging of times, and we want to say thank you," Basso wrote in the email. "Through the generous support of Penn State Human Resources' retirement-plan partner TIAA-CREF, we are able to extend this offer to employees to come out and support our student-athletes during their first game of this very special season."
All employees also are able to purchase $10 advance parking permits for the game at that time and must verify their employment status by using their Penn State ID card at the time of purchase.
The first 1,000 faculty and staff employees who attend the game on Saturday and show their Penn State ID to the Human Resources staff on the upper concourse behind either Section NA or NL will receive a special gift from TIAA-CREF.
