Student University identification cards are issued to all students at registration. The identification card is used for meals in the cafeteria, Library check-out, admission to athletic events, the use of recreational facilities and equipment, and admission to various campus programs. Students should keep their IDs with them at all times as they are now used to access dorms and academic buildings.
