    Since it doesn't even have your name printed on it, much less a photo, or ID number, what good is it?
    What was the purpose of it?
    I don't see how it could be used as a student ID for discounts etc..

    Can we use it to get into home football games free? How about hoops?


    Wonder how the college marching band looks -- surely we have more than a few music majors... LOLOL

    Do they seriously give student discounts without a photo or name printed on the card? You could give it to anyone.

    Has anyone tried to use an Excelsior student card for anyother student discounts (student discounts on bus fares an so on)?

    Does COSC or TESC have better student cards?

    In my experience, at the theaters they don't care much about the student ID features, sometimes if you get a lazy cashier/ticket controller they don't even ask for ID.

    I think Excelsior should make an effort to at least prinnt the student name on the card, so it could be matched to your regular picture ID.

    I used my Excelsior ID for the following:
    1. Access to another college's library
    2. Not have to pay NY State Sales tax on textbooks
    (had to have document listing required textbooks for course)
    3. Student discount on Microsoft Office
