Liked what you read? I am available for hire.
One college I visited recently has a great visitor check-in system. At the front desk there's a binder filled with baseball card sleeves, and each dorm resident has their own sleeve. To check in, the visitor hands over their driver's license, which is placed in the sleeve. The visitor gets it back when he/she checks out. So easy! No dumb paperwork, and the college knows who's in the dorm at all times.
