IDs/Thunderbucks

You'll need an ID card to check out library items or use the Student Recreation Center. Get your ID card in OUC 102 from Monday-Friday, 8AM-5PM, for $10. That $10 goes onto your ID card as "ThunderBucks," because your ID is also a prepaid debit card that saves you money on purchases you make on campus. For example, when you use your ThunderBucks card, you

  • get 10% off food purchases on campus
  • pay no taxes for on-campus purchase
