This past September Fenway Park hosted College Day where all college students got into the park for free with a student ID. Sponsored by Student Universe, students had the opportunity to visit the iconic stadium for free and win prizes from multiple brands. Some of these brands included Bruins tickets, Red Sox Tickets, Mount Snow Passes, Dunkin Donuts gift cards, and more.
College Day wasn’t just about baseball—it was about the students. The first 100 students in line were given free day passes to use Hubway bikes for a day. Throughout the entire day there was one-of-a-kind photo ops, giveaways, door prizes, free food.

The line wrapped about the entire park with students eagerly waiting to get inside. Students were welcomed with bags full of random free goodies that they could keep and use to collect their free items throughout the day. There were raffles and competitions where students from all schools played against each other for free things.
“It was wicked cool. I won a free mini basketball hoop just for playing a game,” said Joe Laviano, a student at Northeastern University who attended the event. He continued by saying, “I hope they do it again next year. Not a lot of people get the chance to go to Fenway for free, and get free stuff for going!”
Students had a chance to take a photo with the park in the background and Wally the Green Monster by their side. Later they were able to see all of the photos on the event Facebook page! The day was a success and memorable for many fans who have never had the opportunity to visit there ever before. Hopefully Fenway hosts more events like this in years to come.
