Student card ticket integration

Since this is an event put on for the students, and tickets are highly sought after from people all across Vancouver (due to the subsidized ticket price, and great acts), it’s extremely important to make sure that the attendees are actual students of the University. What better way - than to not only verify student numbers, but also use the student card as the ticket?
