WVU shows some love for all-in-one campus IDs

It’s more a students’ photo identification. It’s an all-in-one solution for campus access, services and events. The Mountaineer Card, the official campus card for West Virginia University, is an essential part of student life, according to The Daily Athenaeum, the university’s official student newspaper.

Students may use their Mountaineer Card in a variety of ways, including to access dining services, transits and buses, libraries, athletic events, student health services, select campus vending machines, campus laundry facilities, recreation center, and computer labs.

It is also serves as a debit card, where students can choose to put money on the card in the form of a debit plan called the Mountie Bounty program. The cards remain active and are used by the student for as long as they are registered for classes. The cards can be used to make purchases at a range of dining locations, copy centers, bookstores, vending machines, parking offices and technology support centers.

Schools officials say the card is still evolving. Planned, new features will allow students to make Mountie Bounty deposits online, check their balances and view their past transactions.
