Retro-style “Diamonds and Coal” from The Herald’s issue on February 9, 2007:
A coal to the Transcript Office. During “peak” time, students must wait up to ten days after filing a request to receive transcripts, which cost $4 per copy. It is not the money so much as the principle of charging for something as crucial to future success as a transcript. Brown students pay nearly $29,000 to attend this institution. A set number of free transcripts — deliverable within a tighter time frame — during a student’s stay here would be nice.
