The Student Survival Manual 9

10 things to remember about your ID card

1. Don't lose it -- you'll very possibly have to get your picture taken again. Do you really want to go through that aggravation a second time?
2. You might need it to do a lot of important and worthwhile things on and off campus including the following:
3. ... registering for classes. They may ask you for this in case you are trying to be someone who you are not -- why you would do this is anyone's guess.
4. ... paying your library fines.
5. ... getting a transcript or returning those used books at the bookstore.
6. ... checking out a book at the library after you've finished item 4. above.
7. ... getting into a sporting event or concert at reduced rates.
8. ... getting into other establishments that cater to students and who give special discounts on "student night."
9. ... buying your calculator, computer, or new pickup truck at "student" prices.
10. ... actually receiving your diploma (No, I'm not kidding).
