Flip Me!

Jared is a development wizard that had the original idea of a student ticket exchange. His dedication led Student Seats to new heights that allowed us to market our website for the very first time and expand past The University of Alabama. His oddly relatable memes and dry sense of humor continue to entertain us all.

Why We Started

We were both students at the University of Alabama who witness thousands of dollars going into the pockets of scammers on unfiltered, unmoderated social media pages. We decided that someone needs to do something about it.
