HAMMOND – The Lion's Lagniappe account, which is accessible through the Southeastern Louisiana University ID card for students, faculty and staff, is now being accepted at off campus retail locations for payment.
In addition to being accepted on campus for various purchases, Lion's Lagniappe can now be used just like a debit card at the following Hammond retailers: Smoothie King on University Avenue, both Hammond locations of the Salad Station, Pita Pit, Coop DeVille, Rende's, and Campus Convenience. Also offering the service will be the University Avenue and Thomas Street locations of PJs and CVS Pharmacy in Hammond.
Robin Parker, director of marketing and strategic initiatives for Auxiliary Services, said additional retailers are being signed up to participate. Vendors participating in the program can be identified by a "Lion's Lagniappe Card Accepted Here" sign.
"We have enjoyed great success with the Lion's Lagniappe program on campus at such locations as the University Bookstore, the Document Source, campus dining facilities, the Health Center, the Pennington Student Activity Center and with copy and vending machines," said Parker. "We are excited about being able to offer this convenient service to our students, faculty, and staff at off campus locations as well."
Managing a Lion's Lagniappe account is available online, Parker added.
"Manage My ID is a secure service providing students, faculty and staff with online Lion's Lagniappe account capabilities," she said. "Accounts can be activated at southeastern.edu/managemyid."
