Calling All Students

The Panthers announced on Wednesday the opening of their brand-new Student Rush rooftop lounge 'The Library.'

The space will be populated with local DJ's, bar games and a private bar featuring select $5 beers for college students to interact with each other and watch Panthers hockey. 'The Library' is open during the game exclusively for students where beers and wine will be sold for fans 21 and older to enjoy.

Plus, students can look forward to special nights including a Greek Night, Breaking Into Sports Night, Student Appreciation Night and more.

The best part is that all student tickets are $20 and include parking.
