Harvard-Yale: The Financial Crisis Edition

Get your game face on.

Budget cuts have taken a toll on one of the most storied Harvard traditions: The Game.

Due to cuts within the Harvard Athletic Ticket Office, undergraduate tickets to this weekend’s Harvard-Yale Game are only available across the river at the Murr Center. No easy dash to Memorial Hall like last year. Sure, you can get a friend to pick one up for you if you make a copy of your Harvard ID, but your friends probably don't want to walk over there either.

And as if making the trek across the river wasn’t enough, you also have to pay $15 for a ticket. Those were definitely free last year.

While you’re out and about, don’t forget to make a trip to the Holyoke Center to buy a $40 bus ticket to New Haven from the Harvard Box Office. School spirit sure isn’t cheap.

Here’s a recap of all the details you need to get yourself into the Yale Bowl:

Undergraduate Ticket to The Game: $15 at the Athletic Ticket Office in the Murr Center, open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Bus Ticket to New Haven: $40 at the Harvard Box Office in the Holyoke Center, open Tuesday - Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.
