Want to share one of your student’s college experiences?
Come enjoy the men’s and women’s basketball teams with your child in a cheering
crowd. If home is a bit too far away, receive live feedback online or on your phone
so you can swap game tales later.
The ticket office at St. Bonaventure University, located on
the first floor in the Reilly Center, offers deals on tickets and provides chances
to cheer for both the men’s and women’s teams.
Parents may purchase tickets in-person at the box office, by
phone (716-375-2500) or online at www.gobonnies.com.
Students can attend home games for free.
Individual tickets for the men’s games range in price from
$12 to $22. If you are interested in attending a women’s game, tickets range
from $3 to $5.
“We have three different ticket packages (for the men’s
team): bronze, silver and gold,” said Melissa Curran, manager of the SBU ticket
These tiers are broken up based on what teams will be
playing against Bonaventure. Prices for the bronze tier are $12, $14 or $18 per

“Our biggest sellers are VCU, Xavier and St. Louis,” said Curran. For those games, especially, she recommends fans buy the tickets during pre-sale.
The ticket office is doing a ticket event called “Tweet for Tickets.” “Bonaventure is playing a game against Citadel. If we get 4,000 Twitter followers (under the Twitter account name “Bonnies Athletics, @Go_Bonnies”), we will sell tickets (for the Citadel game) for $10,” said Curran.
If you are unable to attend any game, go to www.gobonnies.com and get live stats from Twitter or Facebook and video footage of the games.
Games give the Bonaventure student body a chance to unite and cheer on the team.
“It’s so nerve-racking when both teams are tied and you’re at the edge of your seat hoping the Bonnies break the tie,” said Lauren Loftin, a junior political science major.
“I love cheering for the team with everyone,” said Siika Merrian, a junior psychology major. “My father is an alumnus and a huge fan so I love getting a call after the game and ranting about it with him.”
“Parents should have the opportunity to enjoy the game with their kids because it’s a great way to become a part of the Bonaventure family,” said Loftin.
