Students are now able to print before their 8 a.m. classes due to popular demand. The printers are located at the Help Desk on the second floor of the Elliot Center. The printing is available from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m., Monday through Friday morning.
In the past, students were not able to print before their 8 a.m. classes because the printers were located in the library, which does not open its doors until 8 a.m. Many students expressed concerns about this, given that many would work on their assignments late the night prior to a deadline and would not have access to a printer in the morning before their class began.
KSC freshman, Jolene Hauptman, has an 8 a.m. class every day of the week, so she is looking forward to taking advantage of this change. “Some people don’t have enough time in the morning if they’re staying up late, so it’s really helpful,” Hauptman said.
KSC senior Stefanie Diskin said the change is good because many students typically procrastinate and this allows for a realistic option for them. “It will be beneficial because college students tend to wait until the last minute. Especially during finals week, we’re just trying to get everything done so it’ll be one less thing we have to worry about,” Diskin said.
Chief Information Officer at the Help Desk, Laura Seraichick, said she believes students will appreciate the change. “I think it’s helpful for students who don’t have a printer in their room and who have an eight-‘o -clock class and maybe didn’t finish working on what they were doing to be able to print because the library is only open until midnight. It’s another option for them,” Seraichick said. The change is fairly new and has only been in use the past two weeks. So far, not many students have taken advantage of this alteration.
“We’ve seen small traffic so far. It’s only been two days. We saw five or six students one day and a couple the next,” Seraichick said. She said although the change is small, it is there to benefit the students. “It was a little effort to be able to provide it for a half hour so it helps some students out,” Seraichick said.
