Ever wonder what life is like for your card office peers at other institutions? Maybe you’ve been to a NACCU conference and spoken to another card administrator about their operation, but simply couldn’t visualize it because you haven’t seen their setup with your own eyes.
Over the course of the year, CR80News is going try to change that with our Card Office Tour series. In this video series you will have the unique opportunity to tour campus card offices at institutions large and small across the country, as well as hear straight from the source about the office’s overall operation, projects they are undertaking and the challenges they face.
We kick off our office tour in Statesboro, Georgia on the campus of Georgia Southern University where the campus card has grown to be an integral part of student life. Hear from the Director of Eagle Card Services, Richard Wynn, as he gives a rundown of many services that the Eagle Card supports, as well as a glimpse at the office itself.

CR80News would love for your campus to be the next stop on our tour! To participate simply send in a video showing your campus card office and its layout, your office’s location on campus, and a short discussion about some of the strengths and challenges your operation faces. Video submissions don’t have to be high-budget affairs, either! Simply take out your smartphone and film (in landscape) a short — no longer than five minute — informal walkthrough of your office.
As you walk us through the office, we’d love to hear commentary about office operations, your staff and fun facts. Other things to discuss:
- Unique challenges that your office faces in it’s layout, location, foot traffic, etc.
- A clip of the issuance process
- Some fast facts: how many cards the office prints, the type of card and printers used, number of printers, etc.
- Any future plans for the office
Regardless of your videography skills, your submission would be a great addition to the series and can provide CR80News readers with a rare opportunity to actually view other card offices and hear from campus peers.
