ARHS and UPUA Get Us Home Safely

ARHS and UPUA have accepted the fact that Penn Staters drink. With the help of new information cards, they’re striving to get students home safely.

The cards display phone numbers for three taxi services, the number for the campus escort service, and a miniature CATA bus schedule. The front and back are shown here.

Steve Roberts, associate vice president of Association of Residence Hall Students (ARHS), conceived the idea of the cards in light of the recent State Patty’s Day. We contacted Mr. Roberts for an explanation of these cards.

“The cards are printed on cardstock and thus are durable. Additionally, they are not in the traditional format of a flyer or larger piece of paper which would typically be thrown out.  The cards are about the size of a normal business card and slide easily into your wallet or purse so that when students go out it’s not a hassle to bring it with them.”

In addition, he says that several bars and apartments have already requested information cards to distribute to students.

At my floor meeting last night, my RA passed around a stack of these cards. My floormates agreed that while the front side may prove useful, the reverse side is laughably illegible due to the minuscule font size.

This initiative is a great idea, and I hope it succeeds. However, a bit of advice for the lost drunkard in need of transportation: call a taxi, don’t wait for the bus. It’s highly probable that you can’t decipher the font.
