Student Attendance Drops At College Football Games
College football season kicks off this Labor Day weekend, but a report from The Wall Street Journal reveals that student attendance is declining at college football games.
Kyle Harrington joined Arthel Neville on America's News Headquarters today to discuss what’s keeping students out of the stadiums and how colleges can get them back in the seats.
Harrington pointed out that tuition costs have grown three times as much as the consumer price index and two times as much as medical costs over the past decade.
"It is just becoming more and more expensive for students to go to school, pay tuition, pay for books and also pay for tickets to go to the stadium," Harrington explained.
To add insult to injury, Neville noted, the tickets prices also are steadily climbing, making it an even less appealing option for a cash-strapped student.
