When one of the student body’s biggest fears was realized and Boston University administration cut print quotas and eliminated ResNet computer labs, inquiring minds at The Daily Free Press couldn’t help but wonder: if in this city, you’re either in or you’re out, what’s next on the list to be offed?

Students who chose to check their Boston University email accounts during the summer may have noticed a relatively unexpected BU Today update earlier this month.
