Thoughts on the proposed student activity fee for UH? I like it but I’m not paying for it.
Perhaps it would give the students a reason to show up for athletic events. Perhaps they don’t have the $3-$5 per game to pay at the gate but if they had a card that let them in without a hassle … when I was in school (UCLA in the 70s) , we had a fee. everyone paid it and everyone got a book of tickets for football games. Basketball (men’s) was another matter. You put your name in for season tickets and were chosen by computer lottery. then you got the free tickets.
And all of the other sporting events were free. Back in the day, we used to drop in to watch some of men’s volleyball on the way to playing an IM contest. Don’t think they even bothered with tickets for MVB, and they played in Pauley.
