ACU is taking another step to allow students to create their personal experience at ACU through the introduction of three customized student ID designs.
The idea for the new design came from multiple sources including, students, University Marketing, and The Depot. Each group observed that the background image on the current ID card was washed out, so even when students were to receive a new card, it looked faded and did not reflect the vibrant environment of ACU, said Darren Curry, director of student administrative services.
After receiving feedback from students and conducting bi-annual surveys, the Depot saw that students valued personalization and choice. From the information gathered, it was clear students wanted to select the design on their ID card, rather than automatically be given one, said Curry.
“ACU values student feedback,” said Curry. “Many of the enhancements in services, programs and even facilities are due to feedback the university receives from students.”
Students will be given the option of three ID designs to choose from. Two options feature photographs of the Onstead-Packer Biblical Studies Building and the third is an image of Jacob’s Dream.
Curry said the university is focused on improving the student experience, based on student feedback and desires. The creation of the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, the increased flexibility of meal plans and the addition of new degree plans such as worship ministry and engineering are several examples he gave.
“It’s great to give students options rather than giving them one standard option,” said Brandon Monoroe, Depot student service specialist. “The new IDs just make it even more of a personalized experience. You have different options in choosing a meal plan that fits your lifestyle, and you now you can also choose your preferred ID.”
The new student IDs will be half off this week, from March 5-10. In addition to IDs, students can also complete academic forms and request transcripts at the Depot.
