Wear your College ID card at all times

All students are required by the College to wear their student ID when on Campus.

Students using their College library need their ID cards for borrowing, logging in to PCs, buying printing credit and have passwords reset, to name just a few reasons.

In Moreton Morrell College library today we decided to have a bit of fun but with a serious message, and carry out¬†a head count of¬†those students coming in to the library wearing their ID visible around their neck… until¬†we reached the 200th person, who we then ‘grabbed’ as our prize winner.

ID card winnerThe lucky winner was Kelly Finlay who was first in a group of students who came in to the library for an HE induction; she won a large tub of chocolates.

Well done Kelly for wearing your ID!
