So this is it. Get used to seeing this, make it your friend, and don’t ever let it go. This is your new student ID card. I’m a pretty young guy but I’m going to make myself sound really, really old here…..ready? These things are so much better than the cards we had when I was in school! I am extremely jealous and if I can find one of you on campus that looks enough like me I just might take one of them. Let’s compare the list of what the cards you all will be receiving can do compared to the card I had in school could do shall we? This is a real list:
YOUR CARDS: 1. Are library cards. They give you access to electronic resources and check out materials at the campus library.
2. Allow you to eat in the Krasa Center dining room, the Coal Ben and Kindlon Coffee Shop
3. For those of you living on campus they get you into your dorms.
4. Act as an ATM card if you activate it to become your U.S. Bank ATM card.
5. Can be used as a PIN-debit card at the bookstore if it is linked to the U.S. Bank account.
MY CARD: 1. Proved that, at some point, I was a student at the university (yep, we didn’t even have a year on there).
Needless to say you guys are lucky that you get these things and again I don’t care how old I sound….I can’t believe how far this stuff has come. By the way, you may be laughing at me right now but trust me, even one year after you graduate you’ll find yourself using that phrase at some point. It’s a scary thing when it happens! For now, though, don’t worry about that just worry about not looking ridiculous in your ID picture. Enjoy what’s left of your summer everyone and we’ll see you on campus soon!
