The Hun School of Princeton, an independent college preparatory school in Princeton, N.J., has partnered with CardSmith, Doylestown, Penn., to offer the 1Card for its 585 students, staff and parents.
The enhanced ID card includes Raider Cash, a prepaid spending account students can use to make purchases at the campus bookstore, dining hall, snack bar, concession stand, vending machines, laundry rooms and selected local businesses.
Parents and students can access Raider Cash accounts 24/7 from an online account center to view transactions, add value, establish automatic allowances, and more. Raider Cash also features the new Raider Rewards program that provides additional benefits for Raider Cash purchases at the campus bookstore.
“When we started looking at doing a card program, the objective was to streamline our bookstore processes and have better tracking for dining operations,” said Richard Fleck, the school’s CFO. “Once we got started, we saw the opportunity to make the campus virtually cashless and provide additional convenience and control for parents, students, and staff.”
The Hun School, founded by mathematician John Gale Hun in 1914, is a co-educational day and boarding school, serving students from 16 states and 10 countries in grades six through post-graduate.
