    Wanted: 2 student tickets to ISU vs Kansas

    Interested in two tickets to the game *IF* we are able to get in as students - husband and I both have our student IDs (graduated last year) but don't know what the new process is to get in? Otherwise, if we can just get hillside seats and sit in the student section we'd do that.

    Get the hillsides. Once you get into the stadium they only check IDs occasionally. Some are strict about the ID, some don't bother checking.

    So I'm right in the fact that students don't actually get tickets anymore - they just look at the ID and don't have a fast process to verify the ID every time?
    Sorry, haven't been to a game since early last year and those were in the regular seating. Lot more fun to sit with the students!

    Correct. You can scan any ticket at the gate and they only manually check ID's to get into the stands. So if it looks like an ISU card, you're good.

    If I can get onto CyRide with a Target gift card, they'll be fine

    A test, really. At a certain point in the day, they get so many that anything red means yes to them

    Awesome! Thanks - we figured as much when we heard about the changes but it sounded so easy to get around we thought there would be some type of catch.

    Lol, that's pretty good. I hated how picky they got on the days I couldn't dig my ID out fast enough or didn't have it on me. Yes, I'm actually a random Ames resident that is trying to repeatedly rip off the system by wearing a backpack and riding from Kildee to Friley three times a week. Brilliant plan I've come up with.
