Bear Bucks: The Newest Businesses and Some Hidden Gems

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Wash U chapter.



We all love that warm and fuzzy feeling we get when an off-campus business accepts Bear Bucks.  That little green, red, and white sign just always manages to bring a smile to your face. However, I feel like I’m always going to the same places simply because I’m unaware of all of my options. So, for my sake, and for all Her Campus readers, I have decided to create a list of some of the newest (and best) places that accept Bear Bucks. Don’t worry… I know that your desired list of locations all depends on cravings, so I have organized the list with this in mind.
