The Buzz Card functions as your student ID, library card, meal-plan card, and door access/security card.
As a student ID, your Buzz Card provides access to the student computer labs, the Young Center, Student Health Services, and student activites including athletic events, plays, and concerts.
As a library card, you can utilize the resources in the library and check out books and other materials.
As a meal-plan card, present your card when dining at the Hive, or use your card at the Buzz Shack, or at Jacket Java and deduct your purchases from your Dining Dollars (attached to your meal plan) or from your Buzz Bucks account.
Finally, as a door access/security card, you are provided access to your residence hall and campus buildings.
You may also choose to have a Buzz Bucks account. This account is like using a checking account or a debit card. You (or your parents) can make deposits to your account at the Buzz Card Office, the Student Union Information Desk, the Library, by mail, by using the online card office, or by using the Cash-to-Card machines located across campus. Present your card when making a purchase at participating locations, on- and off-campus, and the amount will be deducted from your Buzz Bucks account.
