Georgia Southern University student ID cards will now have sexual assault and suicide prevention hotline phone numbers on the back.

The proposal for the addition of the hotline numbers was initially formed by the Active Minds student organization. The proposal was then later introduced by the Student Government Association and higher administration.

“The new Eagle ID’s with included hotlines are phased in as new students come to Georgia Southern and receive their Eagle ID’s,” SGA Executive President Dylan John said.

John said the hotlines are nationwide, however the hotline can connect to each student locally. Meaning that you can use this hotline if you are on or off campus.

The new Eagle IDs will be given to new enrolled students, John said. For students who already have an Eagle ID and are interested in obtaining the new version with the hotlines, they will need to purchase a replacement from Auxiliary Services.

John said GS is one of the first institutions to offer this accommodation for their students.
