I saw a ton of 5/3rd banks around, as well as a Chase in a shopping center kind of near Regents. And there's a BoA ATM in a CVS near there I think?

I'm keeping my Chase account, but Citi def sounds nice.

So for people who have gotten the ebill stuff, is the "balance" amount the amount that we get for living expenses?

Get an account from Ally Bank, an online bank. They reimburse all ATM fees so you can use any ATM. They also pay interest on checking and offer good interest rates.

Only downside - you can't deposit cash.

Thanks. Your memory will serve you well in the days to come.

I found this relevant article pretty interesting: http://diskordchicago.com/2009/09/the-u ... -citibank/

any money left (the balance) is refunded from the University to you directly -- and that is for the rest of your expenses during the quarter.

Also of interest - a list of all on-campus cafes: --LinkRemoved--

I'm psyched to hit up The Pub in the basement of Ida Noyes on 59th. Any other craft beer enthusiasts with me on this one?

I like how the university has set up an entire system so that other students can try to pawn their worthless shit off on me.
