Identification Cards

All students and employees are required to have a Lynx Card I.D. Members of the Rhodes community may be asked by Campus Safety Officers to identify themselves with their Lynx Cards. Lynx Cards are required by the Barret Library to check-out books and and by the mailroom in order to pick up mail and packages. They are also used to access meal plans in the Refectory and for admission to various College events.
