FREE AREA STUDENT ADMISSION TO SR GAMES.

FREE AREA STUDENT ADMISSION TO SUL ROSS ATHLETIC EVENTS
    Effective immediately, Sul Ross State University will offer free admission to all area school students 18 and under to Lobo athletic events.
    Students 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
    Dr. Quint Thurman, Sul Ross interim President, said the free admission policy stemmed from a conversation with Steve White, Alpine ISD superintendent, regarding ways to work more closely together.
    “I see this as an excellent way for Sul Ross to recruit area students,” said White. “Offering free admission to athletic events provides additional opportunities for students to visit the campus and become familiar with the surroundings.”
