New printing options available in the Student Services building
February 2, 2011
Since the beginning of the most recent fall semester, Bakersfield College has been allowing students to print their work upstairs in the Student Services building next to the Financial Aid office instead of just in the Grace Van Dyke Bird Library.
For a fee of 10 cents per print, students can make as many copies as needed. However, they should not forget to load their Gades card down at the library first because Student Services is not equipped with the same money transfer machines that are found in the library.
Jesus Arago is the computer programmer in charge of overseeing the printing services.
“Students like to come here because it’s more convenient for them,” he said.
He spoke about what students would need to do if they wanted to use the services provided.
He recommended that if a student chooses to print in the Student Services office that they be mindful of the rules that are in place. “Please turn all cell phones off and do not log onto MySpace, Facebook or Twitter because you will be asked to vacate the premises.”
Norma Coca, a freshmen majoring in child development, commented on why she used the machines in the Student Services building instead of the ones in the library.
“It’s more quiet up here than it is in the library,” she said, “and I don’t have to wait forever to get on a computer.”
