Auxiliary Services, which includes Food Services, Print & Copy Services, and the University Store, are all featured in the campaign, “Here For You.”
Brett Sampson, the university services marketing coordinator, said the campaign is aimed at helping students and faculty at BYU-Idaho become more aware of what each of the auxiliary services provides.
“We’ve got these three auxiliaries in place, and now in the same place and at the heart of campus, because those are the things we know the campus community needs,” Sampson said. “We’re primarily here to serve students, but also faculty and everybody else, to provide the services they need. We do everything possible to make sure that the quality is great and that the prices are competitive as well.”
Sampson said now that the different services are all in the same place, they will be easier for students and faculty to access.
Print & Copy Services are located in the Manwaring Center in room 167A.
Sampson said he wants students to be aware of and use all the services that Print & Copy Services provides.
“One of the things we want people to know is that Print & Copy Services can do announcements,” Sampson said.
Students can bring their pictures in and get help printing announcements for events such as weddings, baby showers or graduations.
Sampson said Print & Copy Services can help with graphical design issues as well as data merging, the process of addressing envelopes electronically.
They can also assist with projects like canvas prints, laminating, large prints and binding.
Express Print & Copy, formerly known as the Copy Spot, is an extension of Print & Copy Services and can assist students in smaller and more ordinary projects and copy jobs.
In addition to these, Food Services also provides new ways to serve. Along with providing food for The Crossroads, Food Services caters for events and has recently begun delivering locally.
Sampson said Food Services has a rather extensive menu and are able to do everything from luncheons to wedding receptions.
To learn more about the catering options Food Services offers, students and employees can visit www.byui.edu/catering-services.
Sampson said the Auxiliary Services aim to have competitive pricing.
“There are good deals here,” Sampson said.
The University Store is also part of Auxiliary Services and is located in the MC.
Sampson said there are some services that the University Store offers that people may not be aware of.
One of these offers is that students at BYU-I are able to get the Microsoft Office suite through the University Store at no cost.
Another service the University Store offers is I-Compare. Students can use this program to search textbooks online and compare the prices of the University Store with competitors like www.amazon.com and www.textbooks.com.
Students can then order their books from the cheapest source and have them ready to pick at the University Store.
Sampson said the University Store offers workshops for in technology use.
“If you have an iPad and don’t know how to use it, they can teach you about it,” Sampson said.
Sampson said if the University Store is unable to help directly, they will find other ways, either through tutors or other classes.
Sampson said the University Store has a Facebook page and often holds contests in which people can win prizes.
Sampson said the Auxiliary Services are self-sustaining businesses and employ 225 students, giving students an opportunity to make money and gain experience in retail and management.
Sampson said the goal of Auxiliary Services is not to compete with businesses in town but to provide services to students and employees at the heart of campus.
“Convenience really is the No. 1 benefit,” Sampson said. “It’s an effort by the administration to provide those services for students and employees.”
