Bucky talks

Why use Beaver Bucks? Why would NOT use them? I say. Students, faculty and staff can all use Beaver Bucks, and just think about the benefits:

Just Like Cash!

Beaver Bucks are accepted just like cash at all Dining Services locations including: The Lodge convenience store, Lakeside Food Court and Einstein Bros. Bagels . Contracted students can even use them at Northwoods for themselves and their guests.

Just Like a Debit Card!

They are actually even more convenient than cash. Beaver Bucks turn your your student, or faculty/staff ID into a debit card for use at any Dining Services venue. Whenever you make a purchase the amount is subtracted from the account balance.


Beaver Bucks can be even more valuable than the dollar! When used at Northwoods, the user receives a substantial discount off the cash prices.

Keep Track!

Beaver Bucks may carry over from fall to spring semester to a maximum of $200. (They don't carry over beyond the end of the spring semester to the following fall however, so keep track!) You may track your Beaver Buck balance at any dining services location.

Where To Get Them!

You can get Beaver Bucks at any Dining Services location or you can Buy Beaver Bucks Online! What did I tell you? Beaver Bucks are all about convenience.
