As of the end of this semester, banking services previously offered through the student bank, will be replaced by Branch Banking and Trust Company through its ATM and full checking relationship. BB&T will have a table in the lobby of Gladfelter on November 29 and 30 from 11:00 A.M. through 1:00 PM offering a full line of banking services for students and staff. BB&T Student Free is a program with the following benefits:
1. No monthly maintenance fee
2. No minimum balance requirement
3. No per item fees
4. Four no-fee non-BB&T ATM transactions at other machines
5. Free BB&T Check Card with Visa Extras
6. Free BB&T On-Line Banking
7. Regular Savings account with no monthly fee
For several months, the college has actively worked to get a commitment from an outside banking institution to establish ATM service on campus. Because of our small potential audience, most banks would not locate a machine here, even at a fee to the College. BB&T Bank agreed to provide their ATM on campus at no cost and to make it very easy to become a BB&T client. As you no doubt have noticed, it is now up and running, along with a change machine. BB&T has a drive-up presence in the parking lot of Pomodora, just past Ingles on 70, and will build a full branch office in the old Posiedon Restaurant location across from the Waffle House on 70. As you are probably aware, BB&T clients do not pay for the ATM service, although customers of other banks pay a fee to utilize the ATM.
The Campus Store has now established a policy to cash checks up to $50.00 as a convenience to you, and the store can maintain a declining balance system for you should you or your parents establish a cash balance for use in the store.
Please plan on withdrawing your cash from the student bank before you leave for Christmas break.
