Discounts: A simple deal that can make your day by saving some money. The office of Student Affairs at The University of Findlay is excited to announce the start of the Oiler Discount Program, which will give students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents the ability to receive sweet deals within the Findlay Community. It will also give businesses the opportunity to attract more customers.
“We recognized that other schools were establishing discount program and really wanted to provide a way to further connect our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents to our local businesses. It began locally through our Campus Spirit Initiative, which is a group of students, faculty, and staff committed to improving Oiler spirit on our campus and in our community,” Brian Treece, assistant dean of students said.
All it takes for a business to join the Oiler Discount Program is to fill out a free registration form offering a discount. You can find the link by going to www.findlay.edu, search Oiler Discount Program and you will find the registration form. A list of participating businesses is also listed there too for Oilers hunting for such deals.
The businesses receive two 2014 season tickets to Oiler football games, a window sticker to display at their businesses to show they are a part of the Oiler Discount Program and are listed on the University’s website.
With more than 20,000 University students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents, businesses will be sure to have more Findlay Oiler customers in the near future.
“When I had a meal plan, I only went to places off campus that took bonus bucks. Now with the Oiler Discount Program I can see all students, with or without a meal plan, wanting to expand their horizons within the Findlay community,” Christine Sudimack, junior occupational therapy major, said.
The discount program also has deals for hotels, clothing, cosmetics, tanning, office supplies, banking and other businesses.
“The No. 1 goal is to connect our students, their parents, faculty, staff, and alumni to some of the great businesses in our community. By providing a place for them to join the program and provide specific discounts to those involved in Oiler Nation, we are able to make that connection,” Treece said.
