Cane Card (Student ID) Pictures
Your Student ID card, called a “Cane Card,” is used for many purposes on campus such as checking out library books and gaining entrance to the Wellness Center. Representatives will be on hand to take your Cane Card picture and print your ID. Attire is casual, but appropriate.
