Student Printing Policy

As of August 31th, 2011 CSB/SJU implemented a Student Printing Policy as part of a commitment to responsible consumption and conserving resources. Students printed 12,000 less sheets of paper in Dec than May of 2011. Overall, printing is down 36%.

Responsible Printing Tip:
Modify the number of pages that print on one sheet of paper so multiple pages fit onto one side of the page. This is especially helpful for items like PowerPoint presentations. - Tip from Karen Bengtson, Education Department

PaperCut is the print management software that is used to track account printing usage and billing (if necessary).

 

Students should direct questions and problems with PaperCut to the Help Desk at #2228 or helpdesk@csbsju.edu

Faculty Printing Tip

"If it gets shredded,
don't print it!"

Meaning, if the material you are printing is not worth saving, it is not worth the paper you are printing it on. If students toss what you have given them, it may not be worth printing.
-Dan Rassier, Music Department
