Digital Comment Box: Logic Behind School Ids

This fall, the FNU SGA instituted the new digital comment box across all campuses. With the digital comment box, students can anonymously text in their suggestions and concerns (See campus signage for instructions), and the FNU SGA, in conjunction with the Office of Student Services, will act on those comments.

Our first comment questioned the necessity of school ids. This is such a hot topic, we went straight to the Office of the President for a response:

Greetings from the Office of the President,

Some of you have expressed a concern because we are enforcing the use of student ID’s.

Some of you have commented “but I pay for my education”.

I would like to ask, do you expect to find a good paying job once you graduate?

>Of course you do, and at FNU we are trying to insure that you are going to end up as a well rounded individual, that among other things, you will not only have the skills and knowledge required in your chosen field, but the ability to perform in all aspects of that environment.

>Unfortunately in today’s environment we are forced to remain vigilant and aware of our surroundings at all times.

Asking our students, faculty and staff to wear Id’s is a tool that helps to deter possible problems from occurring.

The safety of the FNU community is critical to us and we all have to work together and be part of the solution.

In order to care for your safety, we are providing ID’s and enforcing their use, I hope we can count on your support.


All the best,


Maria Cristina Regueiro, BEE, MM
