Student Life recently made it possible for OCCC students to attend the March 2 Oklahoma City Thunder basketball game for $5.
Several students took advantage of the affordable price and watched the OKC Thunder play against the Indiana Pacers.
Sean Tolbert said he was just walking across campus when he happened to pass a sign that read, “OKC Thunder basketball game tickets for $5.”
He said he couldn’t pass up the offer.
Tolbert, who had never attended a Thunder game, said he figured, what better time than the present?
“You’re missing out if you don’t come,” Tolert said.
“You should make it a hobby as well as a yearly routine.”
Seth Crowder said he bought three tickets for him and family. “
If OCCC does this again I will definitely come back,” Crowder said. “I love the Thunder.”
Jordan Barltln said she had a blast with her girlfriends. They bought tickets for a girl’s night out.
“I think it is absolutely wonderful that OCCC does this for students,” Barltln said.
The Thunder pleased the home town crowd with a romping over the Pacers, winning 113 to 89.
The Thunder are smack dab in the middle of the western conference playoff race.
Since the Thunder arrived in Oklahoma City, Student Life has been doing philanthropic promotions such as this one, Katie Treadwell, Student Life program coordinator said.
The Student Life office is considering having the same opportunity for students during playoff games, if the Thunder can keep on truckin’ throughout the remainder of the season.
