FSU freshmen have saved the lanyard business from near bankruptcy through their continual and spirited support of the fashion accessory. The FSU Bookstore reported record profits this year as a result of the trend and things show no sign of slowing down. A short walk through campus shows there’s nothing freshmen love more than taking their school ID and wearing it around their necks.
Some people might say that lanyards are unnecessary and tacky. Some might even say they are stupid and annoying, I know I would. But the FSU freshmen have spoken and lanyards are here to stay. At least until they see everyone making fun of them for it.
