LAWRENCE, Kan. - It may not be the most important concern to students at the University of Kansas, but many are relieved to hear that officials are upgrading the toilet paper on campus.
Dissatisfaction with the one-ply paper surfaced last year
"We started hearing through kind of a grassroots effort that some of the students were perhaps displeased with the quality of the toilet paper on campus," said Jill Jess, KU spokeswoman.
After trying a pilot program and finding out that they could acquire two-ply paper without an increased cost, university officials decided to take the upgrade campus-wide.
Jess said the campus used about 103,000 rolls of toilet paper last year. She said that because the new rolls are two-ply, officials hope to use the same number or less.
