Senior Class Gift 2009

Why walk to class when you can roll?


Attention, Graduating Seniors (and Bike Lovers, Current and Potential)

Each year, the University of Utah Senior Class presents a gift to the University of Utah as a way of saying “thank you.” This year, the Senior Class would like to give back to the University by creating a bicycle rental program for the University community. The Ubike rental program will make new and used red bicycles available for free rental at the University Student Union, the hub of the campus. Students, faculty, and staff will be able to check out a bicycle for personal use for up to two weeks, free of charge. University of Utah Commuter Services has kindly agreed to match up to $15,000 in funds raised for Ubike. We encourage each senior to consider contributing $20.09 to commemorate graduation and to help put a new “spin” on campus!

  1. Bring a bicycle lock that YOU trust to the Student Union Services Desk.

  7. Return the Ubike to the Ubike shop in two weeks, with no damage.

  8. Come back for a ride soon and bring your friends!
