For Colleges, Small Cutbacks Are Adding Up to Big Savings - NYTimes.com: "s for living on a budget.
Campus life is getting a bit dirtier as housekeeping standards are relaxed. Oberlin College in Ohio saved $22,300 by scaling back on window washing, and Pitzer College in Claremont, Calif., is power washing its sidewalks and windows once a year instead of twice. Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., is having office trash picked up weekly instead of daily, a change that eliminated three custodian jobs.
Please don't increase my course load! But I don't care if they never empty my wastebaskets. Puleeze! Put a trash barrel in the hall once a week and we'll just empty our own trash baskets. What I'm not sure I like is the elimination of those three custodian positions.
