University does not benefit from Pay for Print

Dear Editor,

This letter concerns the article “Printing charges to be implemented” by Sarah Loman. In this article it is stated that the Pay for Prints program will cost students $160,000 and prints will cost eight cents per copy. Also, it states that full time students will receive 100 free copies and part-time students will receive 50 free copies. Currently I am a full time student and I pay ten cents per print and have never received a free copy.

My question is this: How does the university benefit from this program if the students pay less per print and receive free prints?
