Snow Emergency - January 22, 2018, all "U-Zone" Bus Service Ends 11 AM. Maverick Daytime Shuttle Services Ends 10:45 AM.

In September, 2017, the University replaced a worn out Purple Wrap with one highlighting the Residence Hall System.  That fresh wrap included pictures of the 1st residence hall (Daniel Buck Hall), the two Gage Towers (imploded in 2013), and the newest addition (Margaret R. Preska Hall).  Residence Hall Association leaders are seen in this picture claiming ownership of the wrap.

In February, 2017 University President Richard Davenport, 2016-17 Student Association President Faical Rayani, and Stomper checked out a replacement bus wrap with images  of Old Main (former MSU headquarters in the old Valley Campus), and a picture of the Alumni Arch and Bell Tower.

    “MavCard:  Your Ticket to Ride” - Bus Service -

    If you produce your MavCard there is no charge for riding any bus on any bus route within Mankato and North Mankato. You can thank the Student Senate and the Minnesota State Student Association for creating this opportunity. It was the MSSA that championed adoption of the mandatory Green Transportation Fee (now $1.00 per credit hour). In 2011-12 ridership was 198,616 when $45 semester bus passes were being sold compared to a level of 402,397 rides in 2015-16 with the mandatory Green Transportation Fee and no semester bus pass.
