Meet Cole Schlitzer and learn about sports packages!

Hello all first-year Hixsons!

My name is Cole Schlitzer, I am a 2011 Hixson Peer Mentor from Dubuque County, majoring in Supply Chain Management.  I grew up on a 425 acre dairy farm, were we milk about 100 Holstein dairy cows twice a day. In High School I played football, basketball, baseball, and tennis! During the Iowa State school year I work for the Iowa State Football program as a student assistant, where I help with the recruiting process. I am a big sports fanatic and love to go to as many Iowa State Athletic events as possible, so I can cheer on my Cyclones! Speaking of all of the Athletic events at Iowa State we pride ourselves in having great sports teams. Iowa State fields 18 varsity squads in the Big 12 Conference, the nation's premier athletics league. We have not only a strong student fan base, but also a strong alumni fan base. Every year the Cyclones continuously break attendance records and earn top honors in national online polls ranking the best "student spirit" (Hilton Coliseum) and "most dominant mascot on Earth" (Cy). Just in 2011-12, Iowa State finished 46th nationally among 278 NCAA Division I teams in the Learfield Sports Directors' Cup. Go State! The Cyclones’ four-year federal government graduation rate of 65 percent (for all sports) was best in the conference! I could go on and on with statistics, but the real way to experience these great events is to go! This is a big part of the Iowa State experience while being an Iowa State student. An involved student makes a better student. To be eligible to order student season tickets, you must be a full-time registered student at Iowa State University for the fall semester. (I hope all of you are!)

Here are the three options you have when purchasing your student passes.

$249 All Sports Package
Includes football season tickets, men's basketball season tickets, Cy's Pass, Cyclone Alley/Student Alumni Association membership and a t-shirt. (men's basketball excludes holiday break games). (Also access to men's basketball will be on a first-come, first-serve basis the day of the game.)

$125 Football Season Ticket
Includes six home games at Jack Trice Stadium.

$30 Cy's Pass
Includes wrestling, gymnastics, volleyball and women's basketball (women's basketball excludes holiday break games).

These student ticket packages are simple to buy. Simply log onto and click on tickets. From there you will want to navigate to student tickets. When you purchase online, you will be using your student ID number. You have the option to buy now, pay later. Make sure you select ADD to UBill, which will allow for you to wait until August to pay.

I hope this information is helpful and useful! The sooner the better, because they will eventually sell out! You don’t want to miss out! If you have any questions about anything, just shoot me an e-mail at I will be looking forward to meeting you all in the fall! Go Cyclones!
