A Paperless Winter

Santa Clara will continue to reduce its paper usage by cutting out all printed course catalogs starting this winter. Instead, students will be referred to the current course availability web site, where they can browse all offered classes and even search for ones that fulfill a specific requirement. The switch to paperless catalogs compliments the transition to online course evaluations, made last spring. Students responded to the survey-style evaluations at a rate comparable to paper evaluations, and in excess of similar programs at other universities. The move to paperless programs across campus will save the university from purchasing (literally) tons of paper products every year.
