When it comes to cutting costs, American colleges are looking everywhere.
Texas A&M is a case in point. Next year, the venerable institution will be putting a lot less toilet paper into bathroom stalls on campus. According to an article on InsideHigherEd.com, the school decided to cut back after it realized that the average student was using $50 worth of the white stuff each year. ““It’s going to make people resort to going where there is toilet paper on campus and taking it from there,” says one resourceful student.
And if you’re worried about hygiene and cleanliness, you have even more to think about. Because Louisiana State is firing janitors. The school is also eliminating several degree programs and closing facilities. It’s no laughing matter – LSU, like other schools, is facing drastic funding cuts.
So if you like clean living, maybe you want to fire up your computer and study for college classes online in your own spotless home. If you run out of TP there, you have nobody but yourself to blame.
