Big Printing Change on Campus

From ITD:

The entire campus Middle Tennessee State University has entered into a managed print solution in order to provide more efficient copying and printing services. A contract was awarded to the RJ Young Company based on the company’s technical and cost proposals that were submitted during the request for proposal (RFP) process. MTSU currently owns or leases all printers and copiers on campus.  In the future, the University will view printing and copying as a service.  To the participants of this program, this means that there will be no leases, no purchases, no buying of printing or copying supplies. The RJ Young Company will provide an all-inclusive acquisition and service solution for MTSU’s printing and copying equipment and maintain the fleet and associated services as an integral element of the University’s educational and academic mission. The goal of this solution is to provide improved copying/printing services for less overall cost to the University which will flow directly through each department. Departmental funds currently budgeted for the purchase of printers, copiers, and expenses such as maintenance, toner, or lease payments will remain with the department and can be reallocated within the department to other departmental needs. The removal of existing equipment if necessary will take place as soon as new equipment is installed, and a consultation with each area and department will be performed in order to make the right-fit solution recommendation.

Guzheng Music Performance Thurs. Nov. 13


Please come and enjoy a Chinese Guzheng Music Performance at Walker Library Nov. 13th from 2:30-3:00 as we celebrate the International Education Week at MTSU.

The performer is Ms. Tianyi Wei, an MTSU exchange student perusing a degree in actual science.  She started learning the instrument at the age 6 and has been performing ever since.  With support from her parents she was able to focus on academics as well as her love of music.  Tianyi Wei enjoys playing the gu zheng for the peace and tranquility it brings to herself and others.  

"The guzheng or gu zheng (Chinese: 古箏, pronounced "go jin"), also simply called zheng (, gu means "ancient"), is a Chinese plucked zither. It has 18 or more strings and movable bridges, and the modern guzheng usually has 21 strings and bridges. The picks (called "DaiMao") used by performers to play guzheng are often made out of the shells of Hawksbill.


The guzheng is the ancestor of several Asian zither instruments..."
