SGA discusses printed schedule

Elizabeth Jackson, Student Government Association pro-temp, said the spring 2010 printed version of the schedule of classes contains inaccuracies. She said this at the SGA meeting on Oct. 22.

“I just don’t think it is a reliable source,” Jackson said. “Several courses in the French and psychology sections are labeled with the wrong number and professor, and some classes are labeled as summer when they should be for spring.”

Jackson said she believes the university should phase out the printed course catalogue altogether.

“I wish they wouldn’t print it out anymore, it seems like it is a huge waste of money when all the information is available online,” Jackson said.

Jackson and Johann Pedolzky, SGA senator, will introduce a resolution calling for the university to phase out printed versions of the catalogue at next week’s meeting.

Janice Williamson, registrar, said she also believes the university should stop printing the schedule of classes.

“I’m an advocate of not printing it out each semester,” Williamson said. “It would save some money and some trees.”

In other business, the SGA admitted Spencer Castile, accounting and finance junior, and Chaz Briscoe, political science junior, as probationary senators.
