Carding: Campuses & Events

This information speaks specifically to carding on college campuses, however the same principles can be applied anywhere: concerts, festivals (music/vegetarian/earth day, etc.), near high schools or anywhere there will be large, young and/or open minded crowds.

Weekdays are best. If you have a day to dedicate, go for it! 8 AM is usually the first class start time and it slows down around 3 PM. If you only have an hour or two, we recommend lunchtime (11 AM–1 PM) to be able to reach the most students. Some schools, including many community colleges, continue to have a flow of student traffic past 5 PM.

Since many of the larger schools are constantly carded / petitioned by other groups, arriving early generally ensures that you will be the only group on campus and not have to compete for the students’ attention.

You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.
