Printing & Sustainability

Christopher Rinck

As the University continues to make an effort to be more eco-friendly and reduce the amount of print paper that is wasted each year on campus, we the undergraduate student population are being asked to help as well.

The new “Print Green” program that has been created by the university, along with the help of some student leaders, will include 225 free page prints per undergraduate student each semester. I believe this amount of free page prints should meet the printing requirements for the majority of our students on campus. After the initial number of free page prints is reached, charges will take effect for any additional printing. Printers are located in the library as well as in computer labs throughout campus.

This new program will begin Nov. 9, and each student will be issued 150 free print credits for the remainder of the fall 2009 semester.

I hope all of you understand the reason for this and will continue to help the University become more sustainable.

Have a great week and as always please send any concerns you may have to
