SPOKANE, Wash. (July 17, 2003)
– Gonzaga University has chosen U.S. Bank to be its bank partner for the school’s multi-use identification card.
The identification card already allows Gonzaga’s 5,400 students and 800 faculty and staff members to use photocopy machines, check out resources from campus libraries, purchase meals without cash, and have dorm access. The new card can also be used as a U.S. Bank ATM card on and off campus and at many Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals in the United States starting August 2003.
“We are excited about the partnership between Gonzaga University and U.S. Bank because of the convenience it will provide our students, faculty, and staff,” said Chuck Murphy, vice president of finance for Gonzaga University.
“The Campusbank Card program is an extension of a long-standing relationship between
U.S. Bank and Gonzaga University,” said Bob Wigren, president of U.S. Bank in Spokane/North Central Washington.
