Two weeks ago the new Student Service Center in Waterman Building opened and is
already helping many students with common questions and requests. The Student
Service Center is a consolidation of the registrar’s office, financial aid and
student accounting and was designed to eliminate the “run-around” that many
students experience on campus. The SSC is also looking into integrating
several other student services in the near future and just recently has become
the newest ticket outlet for varsity athletics. If you are interested in the
free tickets available for students stop by one of three locations: the ticket
office in Patrick Gym, the SGA office/Cook Commons and now the Student Service
Center (just make sure to bring your student ID).
This week tickets are available for Men’s Hockey:
Friday, February 20th @ 7PM – the Cats face-off against Yale.
Saturday, February 21st @ 7PM – UVM vs. Princeton.
Tickets are free and available now! Also the Ticket Office is conducting a fan
survey, please take some time and fill it out (it takes less than 5 minutes)
and you can win season tickets and much more! To do so visit:
Keep posted for postseason ticket opportunities too!
