The EmoryCard is your official Student ID card. You may add money to your card at machines located in the Woodruff Library at levels 1, 2, and 3; Cox Hall; and the B. Jones Building, OR you may add Eagle Dollars to your card through your Student Center in OPUS. The card may be used for library use, copying and laser printing, entrance to the gym, and for access to some vending machines on campus, and the cafeterias (cash can also be used for these). You cannot use cash at most copy machines at Rollins or at the library, so you may want to keep money on this card. Additionally the card may be used for building access to the P-level and first floor of Rollins after hours.
