Logger Card Policies and Procedures

Purpose

The Logger Card is the official University of Puget Sound ID card. It is the cardholder’s “proof” of affiliation with the university. The card allows access to various privileges at the university. The card may also give the cardholder access to optional services, including campus meal plans, packages at mail services and the bookstore.

 

Applicability

All Puget Sound students, employees, and qualifying university affiliates are eligible for a Logger Card. The Dining Services Office also produces specialized dining charge cards for various departments. ID Cards are not available for courtesy affiliates, visitors, vendors, alumni or spouses of university affiliates. Only the person pictured on the card is authorized to use the card to make purchases or conduct other business on it. Logger Card clients are issued only one identification card.  Duplicate Logger Cards must be surrendered to authorized personnel upon request for proper destruction.

 

Disclosure of Account Information

Account balance information will only be released to the account holder. Parents of the affiliate cannot request account information without consent from the student.

 

Financial Responsibility for Lost Cards

Lost, stolen, or misplaced cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311. To obtain a replacement card, go to the new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) during business hours. There is a $20 charge for a reprint of a lost or stolen Logger Card.

 

Card Retention and Destruction

Dining and Conference Services will hold all lost/stolen cards returned to the department for 90 days. After that period, no lost/stolen Logger Cards will be returned to clients.

 

Obtaining a Logger Card

To obtain a Logger Card, go to the new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4: 30 p.m during the academic year. You must provide an official government issued ID card as proof of identity. All International students must show their passport. All Logger Cards cost $20. Students, faculty and staff will receive their first card free of charge.  Cardholders are responsible for picking up cards in person. Cards are not sent by mail.

 

More Information

  1. Lost or stolen cards must be reported immediately to Security Services at 253.879.3311.
  2. If you are concerned about your card's security; you may request a “hold” on your account (until you determine your card is lost or stolen) at the new Dining Services Office (WSC 240) during business hours.  If you are unable to find your card, you may report it as “lost" which will deactivate your meal plan and bookstore dollars immediately. Once deactivation occurs, you must obtain a new card to access your privileges.
  3. Never punch holes or deface your card beyond its normal everyday use. Cards that have been damaged require a $20 replacement fee.  For normal wear and tear, no replacement fee will be charged. At the time of replacement, the old card must be surrendered to the university.  Card holders may only possess one Logger Card.  Card holders may choose to reuse their old picture on the new card, or have a new picture taken at the time of replacement.
  4. Dining Dollars and Bookstore dollars are non-transferable.  Only the person pictured on the Logger Card will be allowed to spend from that account. The cardholder may be required to sign a receipt for goods received.
  5. A valid card must be presented at the time of purchase.
  6. The Logger Card is an official document and form of university identification.  The picture on the card must be of the card holder only.  No hats, sunglasses, or objects may appear in the picture on the card.  “Silly” faces or gestures are not permitted.   This is enforced at the time of picture taking.

Bob Matthews, Mathematics

For 30 years, Bob Matthews has taught students about topics ranging from triangle concurrency and graph isomorphism to knot invariants. But in addition to teaching, Professor Matthews also immerses himself in the role of a student. He's audited French, painting (check out the self portrait!), quantum mechanics, and ceramics. He also studies violin, and is helping lead an oral history project to gather stories for a biography of the college. "It's another opportunity to learn," he says, "and that's something I rarely turn down."

Honors Program

The Honors Program offers students a chance to fulfill their core requirements in courses that focus on classic texts of Eastern and Western civilization. Each year, 34 students are selected to participate in this four-year program that culminates with an honors thesis presented to the campus community. The Honors Program sponsors activities such as trips to Seattle Opera, the annual Langlow Haunted House, and the Honors Film Series. Fourteen students may also live in the Langlow House--arguably one of the best residences on campus and the site of Honors Program activities.
