In honor of the upcoming Veterans Day, the University is offering free tickets to community veterans and service members for the Nov. 10 home game against Miami. In addition, veterans' family members can buy tickets at the group rate of $8.
The 8 p.m. game is also special in that it will be nationally televised on ESPN.
The free and reduced-rate tickets for service members may be picked up in advance at the ticket office in Memorial Hall or at the door on game day.
"We've already given several tickets away and had a lot of phone calls about picking them up at the door," said Tricia Drummond, ticket office assistant.
BGSU's Student-Veteran Task Force, a committee established to help veterans attend the University, recommended that free tickets be offered to veterans as another part of the effort to be a veteran-friendly campus.
"This will also bring some nonstudent veterans to the game and expose them to campus," said Veteran Services Project Coordinator Duane Whitmire. "It's another way to say thanks."

The Honors Program is holding a raffle with some unusual prizes — a full semester's and half-semester's tuition for BGSU Honors students. The Honors Program is hosting its 28th annual Tuition Raffle now through the end of January. Tuition Raffle is the second-largest student-run fund-raiser on campus.
Honors students will be going business to business to request help from the surrounding BGSU community. All monetary donations will go directly to endow the Honors Program scholarships, and any prize donations will be raffled off during the actual drawing in mid-April. Other prizes for BGSU students will also be raffled. Tuition Raffle appreciates any support offered, said Leslie Robinson, Honors Program assistant.
Anyone interested in donating should contact Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail in donations to:
