Colleges Capitalize on Loyalty Programs Earlier this month, we mentioned the University of Michigan and the launch of their student loyalty program. Many other colleges have followed their lead and ramped up loyalty programs of their own. The University of Oklahoma launched a new fan and student rewards program. Participants automatically receive points for liking, sharing, and retweeting various social media posts. The University of Temple also created a program that allows fans to show their support for Temple Athletics through a combination of in-game social media campaigns, engaging teams on social networks and earning rewards through our new Owl Rewards program. These student loyalty programs are a great way to increase fan-bases at games, along with involvement in the university itself!
