Price changes irresponsible

Letter to the Editor | Sunday, August 31, 2008

Upon returning to campus, I was disappointed to learn that printing on computer lab and dorm printers is now priced at 10 cents per page instead of 10 cents per sheet as it has been in the past. As a result, double-sided printouts cost 20 cents instead of 10 and there is no financial incentive to save paper and print on both sides of a page. With the University’s emphasis on sustainability this year, it is disappointing to see the incentive removed for this environmentally friendly practice.
