New Art Center ID Cards
Art Center is pleased to offer new ID cards to students, faculty and staff. In order to enhance on-campus security, it is now mandatory for all students, faculty and staff to carry an ID card. The cards contain new ID numbers—updated as part of the Art Center Online initiative—and also reflect the graphic identity of the College. During Week 1 of the Summer Term, students may exchange their old ID card for a new one free of charge. Students with lost cards will be asked to pay the standard $10.00 replacement fee. All staff and faculty are required to visit Enrollment Services during Week 2 in order to obtain an ID card free of charge. ID cards are needed to utilize Art Center’s library resources, computer labs and shops in the Technical Skills Center.

To help generate awareness, Bulletin will feature a special “Did You Know?” section containing highlights of important information, both College-related and pertaining to the larger world.
The Bulletin is published by the Marketing and Communications Department, and serves as the main weekly internal communications vehicle for Art Center, containing information for students, faculty, staff, and the greater Art Center community. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to provide new information on a regular basis. Copy for the Bulletin must be received by Wednesday at 12:00 noon.
