SPECIAL REPORT ⓘ
IGNITE on Friday morning sent an email seen by The Avro Post to students that remained opted in and paid their Social Programming Fee with a code that allows recipients to buy Frosh tickets for 50 per cent off the normal price of $20, further confirming that the Student Choice Initiative is establishing new precedents for those enrolled in post-secondary education.
After a request for comment, the student union quickly confirmed that students who had already bought tickets to Frosh at full price and opt in will be reimbursed. Also, students that opt in and pay their fees ahead of the Sept. 16 will also receive an email with the discount code.
Frosh this year is a paint party being held Sept. 21 at Woodbine Racetrack. Party kits were offered for free for the first 1,000 students that signed up, on the condition that they opted into the Events and Opportunities Fee. Frosh is open to guests for the price of $30.
An analysis by The Post in late August on the party kits condition identified a precedent for future events, showing that IGNITE will naturally favour those that fund their services through exclusive offers.
