UTA pass for IR social

We will be taking FrontRunner from the Orem station to the Lehi station to get to Thanksgiving Point's Butterfly Biosphere for our IR social on June 24. If your UVID card is older than 5 years old, you will need to get a new card at Campus Connection so that the UTA pass will be active on your account. The issue date and expiration date can be found on the back of your UVID card. If your card is expired, please get a new card before next week. Campus Connection will give you a new card for FREE every five years, so there is no cost to replace an expired card.
