Here are several things that you need to know about U-Pass.
- You can use your Spring 2015 U-Pass until May 9. There is no U-Pass during the summer months.
- Don’t throw away your U-Pass! You’ll use the same Ventra Card again for your U-Pass in Fall 2015. There is a $50 replacement fee for a new card.
- Your U-Pass card will be activated again on August 17.
- Between May 9 and August 17, you can still use your Ventra Card to ride CTA buses and trains. Add money to your card at a vending machine in a CTA station or online.

On August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gave women the right to vote for the first time. Now, almost 100 years later, womenon20s.org is working to get one million people to vote in favor of putting the picture of a woman on the U.S. $20 bill.
One of the four women being considered for this honor is Eleanor Roosevelt. Roosevelt University is named after Mrs. Roosevelt and her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt. 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of RU.
Vote here to honor Eleanor Roosevelt by putting her face on U.S. currency. Once the voting has concluded, the results will go to Barack Obama in the White House as the people’s choice for a new $20 bill.

In 2015, Roosevelt University is celebrating its 70th anniversary. The founders of RU were working at another college in Chicago in 1945. They left that school because of a disagreement about the right of all individuals to receive a quality education. The new school they established was called Thomas Jefferson College, and shortly thereafter, the name was changed to Roosevelt College and then Roosevelt University.
A Founders’ Day celebration will take place at 3:00 PM tomorrow (Friday, April 17). It’s in the Michigan Avenue Lobby of the Auditorium Building.
