BRIDGES

Connecting Arts & Academics

The Bridges Arts Ticket Program connects the classroom and the performance hall by encouraging faculty to designate ticketed performing arts events on campus as part of their course requirements. A special fund, administered by ARTSwego, covers admission fees for students attending a performance as part of their academic work. Please make your requests judiciously and early, since funds for each academic year are very limited. Faculty members are asked to limit their requests to one per semester.


To take advantage of this program, faculty should submit a written request to the Associate Provost for Undergraduate and Special Programs, briefly indicating the academic connection between the course and the requested performance. If the request is approved, simply follow the guidelines detailed below.  Reserved tickets may be picked up with a SUNY Oswego ID at any SUNY Oswego box office.   Students and the course instructor may purchase additional tickets at the normal advertised prices.
