Exchanging a lot of currency

I am from the US but I came to EPFL for 2.5 months as a visiting researcher. Since I am only here for less than 3 months, I don't have a residency permit. When I first arrived, I went to UBS to try to make a bank account but they declined without the residency permit. Since I don't have a bank account, I have to just cash the checks I receive. However, when I leave Switzerland I will still have thousands of CHF. I'm trying to figure out where to exchange them for USD with the lowest rate or some alternative for getting the money back to the US without losing a huge chunk. Does anyone have suggestions of good currency exchange places in the Lausanne/Geneva area? I'm also open to other suggestions of how to get the money back to the US.
