Student Impressions of CONSOL Energy Center

by Sam Kasan / Pittsburgh Penguins
A few students from the CONSOL Energy Center Student Flush shared their thoughts on getting a peak inside the Penguins' brand-new home.

Mike Stokes
This is beautiful. It is huge. It looks bigger than Mellon Arena. The upper concourse is spacey with a lot of room. It's very nice. They put a lot of good work into here.

Courtney Kuhns
With every seat you get a much better view than you would at Mellon Arena. That's a plus. It's bitter sweet for me. I'm a huge Pens fan, and I love Mellon Arena. But I think will be a new chapter and it's exciting to start here.


Danielle Mays
It was really nice. I love it. It's nice nice. The (suite) bathrooms looked like Vegas compared to the old ones in Mellon Arena. Everything in here is incredible.

Justin Lackey
It's pretty nice in here. I can only imagine when the TVs get put in and the mirrors are up and stuff. It's amazing. It's hard to believe that it fits more people because it looks smaller. The jumbotron is pretty nice. It's a lot nicer.

Andy Walls
I love it. It's very modern and much nicer than the old arena. Mellon Arena is nice but there is nothing like new technology. The seats look nice. The bathrooms are beautiful. Even the boards look nicer. There's no limited view seats, so every seat in here will be nice. The suites are beautiful. It's all great to me. You'll get your money's worth.

Kelsey Schooley
I love it. This is so awesome. I love the seats. I love everything. It's so cool. The jumbotron is awesome. We didn't get to see too much walking around. I love the layout. It's all so nice.

Jennifer Dzaack
I really like (the arena) a lot. I definitely love the jumbotron. I've been to a lot of games at Mellon Arena but I definitely like this a lot better. I'll be here a lot. The flush was spectacular. Every time I come to a game I'll go to that exact stall.
