Transcript Copicards, University of Houston identification cards and campus Connection dining cards are just a few of the cards that will be consolidated into the onecard. the multi-purpose id card will be implemented in Fall 1 997. Photo by: Edmond Vahedi Sophomore hotel and restaurant management major Jason Riggins and sophomore business major David Rosales cast their votes FOR THE OneCard design. The top three designs were voted on during the Students' Association elections March 5 and 6. Photo by: Camilla McElligott 68 .1 Year in Review OneCard cuts clutter by Lisa M. Chmiola Don't leave home without it — the new OneCard, to be implemented in Fall 1997, will be the only way to utilize many services at the University of Houston. Current ID card services, food services, residence hall laundry machine operation and access to the Firm health club in Moody Towers will all be accessible with the card, said Jackie Mitchell, manager of the OneCard office. Users of the card would also be able to deposit money into a debit account available for campus-wide use called a Flex Account, she said. "The students would have the flexibility of utilizing those monies throughout the campus, and it would be pulled from that one account;' Mitchell said. A major task accomplished by the card committee in the spring semester was selecting a design for the card. A student design contest commenced, promising a $ 1,000 scholarship to the winner. \ "We wanted some encouragement for students' education;' said Students' Association President John Moore, a member of the committee. The committees task was to narrow the field of entries to three in time for the SA elections March 5 and 6. During the elections, students voted on the designs. The winning design, submitted by senior computer science major Donovan Bailey, was officially unveiled at the SA Inaugural Dinner April 2. There, Bailey was presented with an oversized replica of his scholarship check. The next step in OneCard implementation, Mitchell said, is the mass recarding of all students, faculty and staff. "The (new) card will be the ID card for the campus;' Mitchell said. "Thats going to be the priority — to get this card into everyones hands? The new cards will also feature video-imaged photos encoded into the card, as opposed to the current photos, Mitchell added. So whether you like your current ID card photo or not, be prepared to have a new mug shot to adorn your wallet. OneCard 69
