Library prints to cost 5 cents per page

Students will now pay 5 cents per page to print in the Arnold Bernhard Library, a 5-cent raise from last year’s price. Students were provided 550 free pages in the 2008-2009 academic year, then charged 10 cents per page after that.

According to an e-mail from Richard Ferguson, the senior vice president for administration, the free pages were dismissed in order to (1) save funds and (2) manage the campus on a more environmental level.

“As one of our ‘green initiatives,’ Quinnipiac promotes and prefers electronic communications, and we believe that the new policy will help us encourage that approach,” Ferguson said in the Aug. 12 e-mail.

Faculty have been encouraged, but not mandated, to accept electronic versions of assignments.
