Salt Lake Comic Con’s FanXperience, aka FanX, welcomes everyone to get their geek on, including college students.
Many probably think FanX is too expensive and they won’t be able to afford it, but fear not; Salt Lake Community College students receive a discount off the admission price to FanX.
Whether it be a one-day pass or a three-day multipass, all students need to do is select the option “student” when buying a ticket and show their school ID when they go to the convention.
“I think it’s a great idea. Students have a lot on their plate and it’s a great way to unwind,” says SLCC student Vance Casey.
Discounts are a useful incentive to lure additional guests to big events such as FanX.
“I would definitely be more inclined to go if student discounts were offered,” says SLCC student Dale Ann Petersen.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of the discount and get their tickets as soon as possible because they will likely sell out.
For those who are unsure if FanX is the right place for them, don’t worry; there is something at FanX for everyone.
FanX guests can people-watch, mingle with cosplayers, meet the stars, listen to the celebrities speak at panels, play games, and meet people and make new friends that share the same interests. Guests can also shop the vendors and be in a really great environment.
There is a common misconception that guests have to dress up as their favorite character from a television show or movie when they attend a Comic Con. Don’t fret, because dressing up is optional.
For students who are looking for an activity that is easy on the wallet and will give them memories to last a lifetime, FanX may be the ticket.
FanX will run from Jan. 29 through Jan. 31 at the Salt Palace Convention Center.
