Getting accustomed to a new campus and city can be overwhelming for incoming students, especially from a financial standpoint. Students are able to use BuckID cash, which comes with their meal plan, at businesses around campus with the swipe of their card. However, most students aren’t aware of what locations allow it.
Here’s a list comprising some of students’ favorite spots that accept BuckID.
- Barnes and Noble- OSU Bookstore : The bookstore is the perfect place to purchase some back-to-school supplies, including textbooks or even Ohio State apparel.
- Clothing Underground : A campus favorite on North High Street to find vintage Ohio State clothes for game days at an affordable price.
- Pitaya : Another affordable clothing option along North High Street, this boutique keeps students looking fashion forward and trendy.
- CVS on Lane and High and Neil: CVS’ close proximity to campus makes it the perfect place to run quick errands, and the ability to use BuckID offers flexibility for students.
