I know many on here attended BU when a bowl game was the furthest thing from a possibility, given the product on the field. How awesome would this have been while you were a student?
Students - your Baylor Bears will compete in the 2012 Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl versus UCLA at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California on Thursday, December 27! As a student you have a unique opportunity to register for an affordable travel package to see the Bears in person!
Roundtrip charter bus transportation from Waco, Texas to San Diego, California.
One (1) student-section ticket to the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl.
One (1) night in hotel stay after the bowl game
*Students will be responsible for all additional expenses (food, souvenirs, etc).
Package availability is limited. Baylor students may purchase packages from 10:00am until 5:00pm, December 5-7 at the Bill Daniel Student Center Ticket Office, or until supplies are exhausted. All student tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students should bring their student ID card at the time of purchase, and final travel instructions will be provided at a later time.

Good grief- that is fantastic. Students that don't take advantage of this don't have a pulse. Great offer- hope the Baylor line is out in force.
That is.... wow.
I wonder if my student ID still works.......
Yea, even if there was no game it would be worth it to spend $100 for a trip to SD.
Is it too late to register for a class?
Pro Ecclesia, Pro Mundus
No kidding! Can I take Theater Appreciation again?

I need to get into a mass comm class immediately. Holy crap.
#Baylorgang we are, #Baylorgang we will always be...
hmmmm.... would a class of 2030 and 2035 get the same deal?

so, a 4 hour class, multiplied by what $500 per hour (i know tuition's a flat rate now), and add around $200 to that for the trip plus food and souvaniers. Seems to me like $2,200 would buy most of you guys a pretty good trip out to San Diego for the game, and you wouldn't have deal with the class, a 24 hour bus ride, and staying in a Best Western (or the like)...
in all seriousness though, that's a really good deal for the ACTUAL students, and I like how Baylor has been putting stuff like this together recently (didn't they put a package together for the MBB Regional in Atlanta last year?). I hope every student, who's a football fan, takes advantage of this, if they can.
Wow... Damn I wish we had a good football team when I was still a student.
Football fan or not, what an awesome opportunity. I hope EVERY student with the means is all over that. Didn't quite have that opportunity '95-'99
Road trip from Waco to San Diego for a hundred bucks ?!?. Not sure why anyone would pass up that deal.
That includes a ticket and hotel room.
I think 450 have done it so far.
It's an amazing deal. I'll withhold judgement on how many take it, but I can hear the excuses already.
Brian is right.. Baylor reported today that 450 students purchased this package see it started this morning.
That's a great start after one day.
i only said "football fan" because i would like for all of the spots on this trip to be filled with people who actually want to attend the game...not ones just looking for a cheap trip to San Diego.
