Buzz Bucks – A Campus Essential

Buzz Bucks is a prepaid spending account on your Hornet Card offering a convenient and secure way to make purchases on and around campus.  Buzz Bucks is designed to eliminate the need to carry cash and since it is accepted at campus dining locations and popular local restaurants, you have the flexibility to eat on or off campus wherever and whenever you choose.  You or your parents must make a deposit to your Buzz Bucks account before using it for purchases.  To learn more about how Buzz Bucks works with Meal Plans and Flex Dollars, click here.
