College Deals for the Carolina Hurricanes

Looking for something fun to do with your friends? Well look no further as the Carolina Hurricanes season is just beginning and they have a sweet deal for college students.
The Carolina Hurricanes are North Carolina’s National Hockey League team. They play their home games at the PNC Arena, which is only about a 15-minute drive from Peace.
Seven games this season are Canes College Nights which means that college students can purchase up to nine discount tickets online for seats for the upper or lower level sections. Upper level seats cost $16, lower level seats cost $45, and sideline seats cost $55.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. One hour before every home game is Canes College Rush, where students who show up at the box office with their student ID can purchase upper level seats for $15 and lower level seats for $35. The only difference here is there is only one ticket per college ID and you don’t get to choose what section you sit in.
Additionally, those on campus with a military ID can get the same Rush deals as well as the ability to purchase two tickets per valid ID.
Senior Shannon Stewart says she learned about the Canes college discounts her sophomore year. Since then Stewart has been to one College Night and three College Rush nights.
“It’s great entertainment,” said Stewart. “I’ve been a fan since I was a kid and it’s a great way to hang out with friends.”
If you choose to park at the PNC Arena make sure to bring $15 for parking. Otherwise you can park in surrounding free lots and walk to the arena. You can also have a friend drive you and drop you off at the door through the drop-off lane.
You won’t be a college student forever, so take advantage of these discounts while you can.
