Employee Discounts and Perks

Everyone likes getting a bargain. But did you know that CMU faculty and staff are eligible for special deals just because they are employees of the university?

There are several activities in which CMU staff are eligible for a discount.  These discounts are made possible by the work of our Staff Council Kennywood & Entertainment Discounts Committee.

  • Scarehouse—New for 2016!
  • Hersheypark in the Dark
  • Kennywood Phantom Fright Nights
  • Cedar Point Hallo-Weekends
  • Idlewild Halloboo

You can always visit  Staff Council Perks & Discounts for links about additional discounts offered to staff.
