Caldwell College started issuing new ID cards to Faculty, Students, and Staff in the fall of 2003. The new cards have a digital picture on them and are used to identify the card holder as a student, faculty or staff for reasons of security. The ID card office is located in room 103 on the first floor of Werner Hall.
