Bank cards: Students' best friendl
By KAREN TENSA
Going to college takes money. And going to the
University of Michigan takes quite a bit of it.
Every student has different needs, but most find
money easier to deal with through a bank. Ann Arbor
offers a wide variety of banking options, most of which
beat stuffing the dorm mattress with bills.
WHILE SOME students choose their bank because
of high interest rates or low service fees, most just
choose the most convenient bank. Now, however,
almost all of the banks in town are connected by a
network of automatic teller machines, which can
make transactions convenient regardless of the cen-
tral bank's location.
Although most machines are affiliated with an in-
dividual band, most machines service all the dif-
ferent banks in town.
Ann Arbor Bank and Trust, one of the most popular
banks in town, changed its name over the summer to
First of America Bank. But services and personnel
have not changed, bank officials say. Even the Ann
Arbor Bank and Trust checks are still acceptable.
FIRST OF AMERICA has three branches near the
University, but the two closest to campus usually
have huge lines. To make opening accounts easier,
the bank waives the minimum deposit for opening
First of America runs automatic teller machines in
the Union, near the Hill dorms, on the corner of State
and Packard, and at two locations on central campus.
It is the only bank in town that charges a fee, $1, for
transactions at another bank's machine.
Along with its name change, the bank became a
part of a state-wide chain allowing some students to
use their hometown bank while they are at school. 11
COAMERICA BANK is convenient for both in-state
and out-of-state students, because it is a nationwide
institution. It has the lowest overdraft charges and
the cheapest checks in town.
Michigan National Bank also has branches all over
the state, as well as nine in Ann Arbor. The bank has
no charges on withdrawals if the savings account
balance is above $50, a nice feature for students who
are always running short of money.
Great Lakes Federal Savings and Loan is situated
a short walk from campus, but offers free checks.
when students open an account.
NATIONAL BANK and Trust Company of Ann Ar-
bor has 11 city locations, including two very near
campus. For students who tend to bounce checks this
bank will automatically transfer money.from savings
accounts'to checking when needed.
Students employed by the University can bank with.
the University of Michigan Credit Union. Like all
credit unions it is run by a board of directors elected
by the credit union's clients. Clients receive a
dividend at the end of the year, as their share of the
credit union's profits.
The Credit Union offers regular banking programs
as well as some special accounts. The Credit Union's
equivalent of interest checking is a draft account.
The amount of interest varies monthly, but it usually
is higher than at the other banks in town.
Because everyone has different needs, the only way
to choose banks is to go into them, see the length of
line, meet the tellers, and find out what they offer.
