University of Illinois i-Cards Through the Years
Tom Merritt is a tech reporter and host on DTNS - Daily Tech News Show. Tom is also an alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, my alma mater. He recently was showing some old identification cards on a live stream, and one of them was of his old I-Card, the University of Illinois college ID. A far cry from today’s version, seen below.
Tom Merritt’s I-Card, circa 1980s:
My I-Card, 2006:
In 2010 there was a major design update with a blue/orange background and profile photo moved to the left. The “Illinois Column I logo” and a photo of the Alma Mater statue were added. The “i-Card” logo was rotated moved to the side.
This has a similar design as the 2010s, but the Illinois logo is updated to the new block I logo.
If you have i-Card photos from other years to add to this history, please let me know.
