“Due to (lack of) funding the center suffered budget cuts that affected our ability to provide the service to the students,” Isel Chavarria, receptionist for the Writing Center, said.

“We received a grant from the Graduation Initiative program that also funds many other programs on campus,” Barbra Budrovich, computer lab director for the Writing Center and professor of English, said.

Budrovich said she believed that the students will benefit from this free service “especially now that it is that time for research papers to be written” but the service only lasts until the end of this semester which ends on Dec. 14. Printing is now limited to just student written essays, outlines associated with the essay and essay assignment sheets. Students who are enrolled in the English 80 reading classes can print their reading score for free with this service as well.

If a student wishes to utilize the free service, it is now required that he or she must bring any or all files to be printed on their flash drive; the files cannot be printed from their email. Although there are a few new regulations for the use of the free printing service, one student expressed her gratitude toward the return of the service.
