SurgeCards provide access, convenience

Your SurgeCard provides access to campus services such as the library and fitness center, as well as free admission to College sports. The SurgeCard can also be used as a debit card for food at the Overlook Café, vending machines, copiers, and other things equipped with the SurgeCard swipe function.
