Transcript UH Contemplates a Multipurpose Debit Card This Cashier accepts a Campus Connection Card for payment at the UC Satellite. Photo by Michael W. Smith. The UH card - a school identification card and credit card that would allow students to pay for their tuition, to buy books, to shop at the local mall and dine at their favorite restaurant - may be coming to UH. Assistant Director of Residential Life and Housing, Jacquelyn Mitchell said the Campus Connection card has the potential of being such a card. Students at Florida State University in Tallahassee have this type of card. They are the first university to have the option to pay their tuition through their university I.D./debit card. Their debit card, financed by a local bank, allows the students to use ATM systems across the Southeast and Plus Networks all over the world. FSU students, professors and employees can use the card to pay for haircuts, food, clothes, tires and other things. The card is the first campus I.D. card of its kind to be fully integrated into a banking system in the United States. The FSU Card is similar to the Campus Connection card used in the UH Residence Halls. It has the student's name and picture on the front side and a magnetic stripe on the back. This allows the students to itemize their meals instead of paying one flat rate to eat in the cafeterias. The UH Campus Connection cards allow a student to eat at four locations around campus: the Moody Towers, the Quad, the UC and the Satellite. The card is like a debit card, but students buy a meal plan ranging from $1000 to $2000. "I hope someday students will be able to use the Campus Connection card for fee payments, at the bookstore and the athletic events," said Mitchell. Mitchell said besides the campus residents, not a lot of people are taking advantage of the meal program. She said it is available to fac ulty, staff and students who live on or off campus. She said students who are not living on campus can purchase Connection Cards worth $50 or more. She said the cards can be increased but not decreased. The Campus Connection cards are being used with a new system called National Brand Concepts. The concept allows restaurants to be franchised into the university cafeterias through ARA food services. Among the franchises are Blimpies, Pizza Hut, Chick Fil-A, Whataburger and Taco Bell. "I like the idea," said Blaine Reed, a Moody Tower resident and card holder. He said the I.D./debit card would be accessible and convenient. Joel Nahoun, an English sophomore, said he wouldn't like the card because there would be too much information in one place if he lost it. - Jesse W.
