ID Cards get an (almost) space age upgrade.

They may look the same, but the new student id cards issued this week are very different on the inside.

If you haven’t already picked up your card, you can do so within the next two weeks from the third floor foyer of the Murphy Building. Unfortunately, there’s no getting rid of that unflattering first year photo.
