10. You can stop at Cumberland Farms and fill up your tank – routinely the cheapest gas around. ($3.46 on 8/24)

9. You can check out the new Champlain Compass on the TV panels and track the bus as it comes toward you.

8. Play foosball with a friend in the Cantina while you wait.

7. Get to know our favorite bus/van driver Christie.

6. Skip circling around campus looking for a parking place.

5. You get dropped off right by centrally located Alumni Auditorium.

4. Take care of business with one-stop with folks in Marketing, Human Resources, Information Systems, Emergent Media Center, Center for Digital Investigation, Continuing Professional Studies, Campus Planning Finance, or Graduate Admissions and CRM.

3. Enjoy some art by Anna Zalewski on the walls of the Miller Center.

2. Avoid expensive parking tickets.

And the number one reason…
1. Fifteen kinds of coffee and a half-dozen flavors of tea – free every day at Lakeside’s Cantina!

Payday savings

Did you know that the mailroom spends almost $50 every other week (or $1,300 a year) mailing out paychecks to faculty, staff, and students? And that’s just the postage! There’s the printing of checks and envelopes and the staff time to process them. But there is an easy to reduce this number: by signing up for direct deposit through the Human Resources department. Simply contact Leslie Carew and ask to sign up. Your check will be directly deposited into your bank, which means one less errand for you as well. Savings abound! Do it today, if you haven’t already. Thanks to Linda in the Mailroom for bringing this to our attention.
