The Student Government Association plans to start a new printing program where students will be able to print a certain number of pages for free.
Students will start out with 40 free pages a year. There will be three new printing stations, where students can print for free.
The new printing stations will be located in the student union, the library and the Brady residential complex.
Students will track the number of pages they’ve printed by using their colonel card.
“The plan is that they will utilize their colonel card, and the colonel card will take away from that declining balance of 40 sheets of paper every year,” said SGA president Austin Wendt.
SGA expects to take $7,000 out of their budget to allow each student to print 40 free pages a year.
Some students are looking forward to the new program since it is not always easy to print and they do not always have the money to print.
“I’m excited about the new printing program because paying to print can sometimes be tiresome,” said Ethan Adams, English major from Madisonville.
SGA said it wants to do all it can to help students succeed, and the printing program is expected to be more beneficial than the previous programs.
“It’s more beneficial than having to pay because you already have to pay so much in your tuition,” said Megan McCormick, a part-time graduate student from Houma.
