Students line up early for Fun. tickets

Despite Thursday night's chilly temperatures, hundreds of Ball State students braved the cold for the second time in a week, all for the sake of Fun.

With the line reaching Pruis Hall by 7:30 a.m., an hour and a half before tickets were officially on sale, students were once again surrounding the John R. Emen’s Auditorium Box Office.

Wil Rettinger, an architecture major, was the first person in line for tickets and arrived at 5 p.m. Thursday.

“It’s been a long night,” Rettinger said. “I’m absolutely freezing.”

More than 3,200 tickets are available for the event.

The box office will sell the first 15 rows and 72 pit tickets for $10; all other tickets will be $5.

This event is open for only Ball State students.

Rettinger received pit tickets and said being that close to the stage will be absolutely crazy.

“I’ve heard some of their stuff that’s not as popular and I really like it,” Rettinger said. “This is my first concert.”

According to the National Weather Service, lows in Muncie hit 28 degrees last night.

Kevin Goodman, a sophomore education major, and his group were unsure whether they would receive pit seats due to line jumpers, but were still happy with the chance to see a “really good band” for $5.

“I felt the frost and it was pretty intense,” Goodman said.

At the time of publication, Emen’s Box Office is still selling tickets and the number of available tickets is unknown.Rachel Podnar contributed to this story.
