Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

U.S. Bank-backed student ID does it all at Colorado university

Friday, April 15, 2011

U.S. Bank and Colorado State University-Pueblo are partnering to produce the ThunderCard, a campus card that grants students access to their dorm rooms, serves as a meal ticket and also acts as an ATM/debit card for those who sign up for the bank’s services.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain newspaper, the university is one of eight schools nationwide using a similar card.


“This new technology will provide many everyday conveniences for our students, faculty and staff,” added A. Ramon Garcia, auxiliary services director at CSU-Pueblo.

“U.S. Bank is excited about adding Colorado State University-Pueblo to our list of campus banking partners,” said Alice Birch, president of U.S. Bank in the Pueblo market.
