Lost Card File

I enjoy looking at business cards, that people have discarded.  It is almost a hobby.  I find one on the ground and try to figure out, did someone drop it on accident, toss it in disgust, or was it a failed hand-off?

Found a card at the end of last week, in the parking lot across from the Student Center.  It is for Chad Trisler - Director - Students Rights and Responsibilities.  After reading the department name, I had a big flash of Animal House, "fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life son."

I have to wonder if SIUC had a 4 civil service, many student workers, department/empire to accomplish this task 30 years ago?  As I remember, there was one person associated with Student Life to handle it in 1980.

Makes me wonder, who Chad was talking to that day, and why did they throw his card down in a parking lot?

Great Animal House analogy. And thanks for the shout out on Southern Illinois Music Festival!
