Sixty percent of students would be comfortable going paperless with bank statements, bills, class schedules and grade reports according to a new nationwide poll.
Not surprisingly, they do draw the line at seeing key documents, such as diplomas, real estate deeds and birth certificates go electronic. And fewer than 30 percent would give up printed books, magazines and newspapers and photos.
The nationwide survey was conducted by Eric Mower and Associates and commissioned by paper company Domtar.
When it comes to landing a job after graduation, 47 percent of students say they will send out resumes electronically, while 27 percent report they will send out both electronic and paper resumes and 17 percent say they prefer to send their resumes on paper.
