Southeastern Louisiana University has expanded its campus card program with the addition of Cub Cash, according to The Lion’s Roar, the student newspaper.
Cub Cash is the university’s latest campus payment program which enables students to purchase meals at many different locations, including off-campus merchants like Subway and Starbucks; in addition to the Lion’s Den and both campus convenience stores, the Mane Market and the Mane Market Too.
“Cub Cash goes hand-in-hand with meal plans and has nothing to do with non-Campus Dining purchases,” said Robin Rodrigue, Director of Marketing and Strategic Initiatives with Auxiliary Services.
On the other hand, the university also offers the Lions Lagniappe account which accepts payment at most on campus kiosks. This includes the University Bookstore, the Document Source, most on-campus vending machines, copy machines, the residential laundry facilities, the Health Center, and the Student Activity Center. Lions Lagniappe can also be used at all campus dining facilities.
Left over Cub Cash rolls over from the fall to the spring semester, but any remaining funds not used by the end of the spring semester are supposedly kept by the university. Unlike Cub Cash, Lions Lagniappe rolls over every semester, and after graduation or withdrawal from the university, any leftover funds will belong to the student and will not be kept by the university.
