Vending Machines Get Connected

Beginning Fall Semester 2013, the vending machines on the Shawnee State University Campus joined the age of technology. The snack and drink vending machines across campus have been networked to allow for purchases using the SSU Bear Card.

Students, Faculty, and Staff can deposit funds into their own declining balance accounts and use their Bear Cards to purchase snacks or drinks in nearly every building on campus. Funds may be deposited at any time on-line using credit card or checking account ACH. Funds can also be added in person at a fill station located in the UC Lobby near the Information Desk. The fill station allows deposits to be made using cash or credit card. Users can check their balance on-line in order to keep track of their available funds.

In addition to the newly wired vending machines, the funds deposited on the Bear Card can also be used to purchase items in the Bear’s Den, at Jazzman’s Café, and at Simply To Go (in the Health Sciences Building). For more information about adding funds to your Bear Card or to learn more about all the things you can do with your Bear Card, visit http://bearcard.shawnee.edu.
