Stadium Lanes Bowling Center has college specials on Monday and Thursday nights every week that dozens of students enjoy.

Between 60 and 80 college students bowl on Thursday nights with their friends, Raquel Mathis, desk manager, said. Word spreads like wildfire and friends meet up to have fun while getting out and being active, Mathis said.

For a certain group of students, bowling is a weekly tradition. Phillip Robinson, a fifth year senior, has been bowling at Stadium Lanes for almost a year now.

“The people here know us and they have at least two lanes reserved for our group of 10-20 people every Thursday night,” Robinson said.

Allie Weatherby, a fifth year senior, is also part of the weekly get together. The group of ASU friends all went to Central High School and have grown up together since, Weatherby said.

“It’s the one time everyone gets to see each other,” Weatherby said.

Students of age also like going to Stadium Lanes because of the drink specials on Thursday nights. After 10 p.m., all drinks are $1 off. The bowling center serves bottled beer and no drafts.

To update the center’s look, the inside of the building underwent construction during summer 2012. The overall atmosphere is modern and upbeat now. The bowling lanes were a little dated and it was the boss’ idea to remodel, Mathis said.

During college night on Thursdays, there is unlimited bowling from 9 p.m. to midnight for $6.50. Students must present a valid college ID upon purchase of games.
