ID Badges: Are They Necessary? Part 2

One student here at Evans talked about how intruders would be hard to identify, as it is  nearly impossible to get a clear image of someone on the cameras. There is no way to zoom in with the security cameras enough to see a student’s name. Other students feel the IDs are unnecessary and aggravating because they largely are not used for anything and it gets annoying trying to remember the ID everyday.

Although most of the student body believes that IDs are just an annoyance, there are some that see the positive impact of the identification cards. A senior at Evans said that she could see that the changes in the world made the ID cards necessary and she thought that even though they can be annoying, they are beneficial. Supporters say the IDs also don’t just help with security, they get you ready for college life, which uses ID cards.
