The Administration has announced a dramatic increase, going into effect on the 15th, in the cost of on-campus printing, prompting campus-wide protest of the price hike.
“After 10 years without an increase, the cost of black-and-white printing on 8.5 x 11 paper is rising one penny per sheet,” reads the death knell of our liberal education. “The new cost for printing a single, letter-size sheet of paper is 7¢ or $0.07.”
Naturally, since the announcement, the printers have been running nonstop to capitalize on the savings.
Falsely labelled as a necessary appreciation to meet “the rising cost of printing,” the Administration seems to be surprised by campus’ backlash.
“These price hikes are ridiculous,” commented Tim Narvon, ‘17. “Nietzsche was right, ‘God is dead.’”
“This change is absolutely absurd,” explains Aubrey White, ‘15. “I mean tution was a totally reasonable $49,666 for the year. Now its going to end up being $49,667.63. This is unacceptable.”
“I have become accustomed to a certain quality of life,” continued Navron. “I am scared.”
SA representatives already have a plan to form a committee to form a committee to confront the administration about the issue, sometime next year.
Organized sit-ins are expected to begin on September 16th.
