At Washburn an iCard can serve a variety of purposes including identification, campus purchases, and access to campus activities. The iCard, which was developed in 2001, has undergone a redesign for the 2008 fall semester.
“We have a total new design,” said Janel Rutherford, Assistant Director of Business Services.
The new card features a horizontal design instead of the traditional vertical card. Other differences include the location of the Washburn Identification Number, which has been moved to the back of the card, and a new graphic featuring the Ichabod.
Rutherford explained that the new card was released because it was simply time for a change.
Any student can receive the new iCard at the Ichabod Service Center located in the Memorial Union. Returning students and staff may also receive an updated card, although it is not required. Students and staff must bring the original iCard along with a photo id to the service center in order to receive a new card. If the iCard has been lost the service center can provide a card for a charge of $10.
