Game Day Broadcasts for South Jersey Shore

Got tickets? Need tickets? Hotel room?
We try to help fellow members of our local Penn State Alumni Association either obtain or sell/transfer tickets to games and hotel rooms in and around State College.

Simple rules apply, with the primary being NO SCALPING!! If you wish to sell your valuable hotel room(s) or tickets for a nice little profit, take your business elsewhere, along with those risks. This is a service that a few of us like to take on just to help out.

For the “away” games, some of us will take road trips to catch another college campus and see another city for a weekend outing. Occasionally we have either tickets, hotel rooms or even flight seats that are available, again through our own membership and those close friends/associates from other alumni chapters. Same rules apply, if we’re going to help with any exchange the selling price must be what the purchase price was.

Questions? More info? Call us or email one of us at the following:
