Today marks the first day of September as well as the first IPTAY Collegiate Club student ticket distribution for the 2014 football season. With the arrival of fall we want to take a look back at what was a successful summer at Clemson Orientation for the IPTAY Collegiate Club. As the student group within IPTAY, the Collegiate Club connects current students with Clemson Athletics and works to make sure every Clemson team has a loyal fan base at every home game. Since it began in 1997, the IPTAY Collegiate Club has grown to over 6,000 members in 2014.
Throughout the summer months of June and July, IPTAY Assistant Director Julia Stump and select IPTAY staff attended 24 orientation sessions. Each new session provided IPTAY the opportunity to educate new students and families on IPTAY and its important role within Clemson Athletics. More specifically, the staff targeted incoming students on the importance of joining the IPTAY Collegiate Club. Throughout the summer, students had the opportunity to become “All In” and sign up on the spot for the Collegiate Club at each orientation session.
IPTAY Collegiate Club provides its members with numerous benefits including early student football ticket distribution, discounts around town at local retailers and members begin to earn priority points at a discounted rate in their account as a student that will benefit them when they graduate. Coming off the most successful year in Collegiate Club history in 2014, the momentum continued into the IPTAY 2015 year as this summer, the Collegiate Club welcomed over 1,500new members. To date the Collegiate Club has nearly 6,000 members for 2015 making it one of the largest student organizations of its kind in the country.
Julia Stump, the Director of the IPTAY Collegiate Club had this to say about summer orientation at Clemson and the IPTAY Collegiate Club: “We are very excited about the evolution and growth of the IPTAY Collegiate Club over the past couple of years. Summer orientation is a great opportunity for us as an organization to get in front of the newest members of the Clemson family. Since 1934, IPTAY has been supporting Clemson Athletics and it is important that we educate and involve those newest Clemson Tigers to IPTAY to ensure the future success of Clemson Athletics.”
