'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

“Research is telling us that our health habits rub off on each other,” says a HealthyU program representative. The goal is to engage the energy of team support by offering weekly team competitions and special incentives for groups of 10 or more employees in each building. 

All participants in the program will receive a step counting pedometer and an activity log. The program costs 30 Wellness Dollars.

For more information and to register, visit the Employee Wellness Program website or call 831-8388.
