HOUGHTON, Mich. — Michigan Tech students receive free admission to home hockey games thanks to the Experience Tech Fee. The process by which they will gain entrance to games has changed for 2013-14.
Students no longer need to pick up tickets in advance. Thanks to the new technology available in the HuskyCards that were issued this fall, students will be able to touch their ID card to a scanner at the door. The student entrance will be at the northwest corner of the arena (closest to Portage Health University Center).
As in the past, the first 750 students will be admitted free and may sit in any Experience Tech seat. Those seats are located in sections K, L, M, N and O of the arena and designated with a sticker on the seat back.
Doors open prior to each home hockey game one hour in advance. To ensure the best seats, students should be present when the arena opens.
Michigan Tech begins its 2013-14 hockey season this Saturday (Oct. 5) with a contest vs. Laurentian. Opening faceoff is set for 7:07 p.m.
