hand scannerEASIER WAY TO SCAN INTO THE SRC???

For the last 30+ years, students and members of the Student Recreation Center have needed their valid dawg tag or member ID card to enter the SRC. Those days are soon coming to an end. Recreational Sports and Services has gone to a “hand reader” that will mark over 200 points in your hand and you can “register” your hand to use to scan into the SRC rather than showing your ID. The process is simple to register – just go to Member Services and ask them to “register your hand print”. It only takes a couple minutes and once registered, you can enter the SRC by just punching in your Dawg tag number on the keyboard and placing your right hand in the reader. It’s hypo-allergenic and safe to use.

Users will have the option of the old way – scanning an ID or using the hand scanner once you are registered. The system is up and running now to try it out!
