We welcome any student org member to utilize our services such as Adobe Creative suite, committee meeting space, and the presentation revision space. However, there are guidelines for product usage. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Each student organization has 1500 points (Spring 2018 only) to allocate towards products such as buttons, banners, and balloons.
  • In order to use the points a member of the organization MUST be on their organization’s Business Profile which can be found in GobblerConnect (5 people max per org). You can update your business profile anytime throughout the year.
  • At the end of each month The Source will be able to update you on your balance.
  • You cannot purchase more points. The goal is to keep this space & its resources free of charge!

Stop by The Source to learn more about how to maximize your points for the year!

Thanks to our partnership with the new on-campus print shop, Hokie Print (located in the Lobby of Squires) we are able to offer all of our registered student organizations amazing discounts!

Here’s what you need to know:

  •  The Source does not do in-house printing. You will not print your fliers, brochures, and other materials with us. 
  • However, if you want to use your student organization discount THEN you will need to send your design to thesource@vt.edu and we will send a verification message to Hokie Print confirming that your organization is eligible for the special discount.
  • Your student org discount only applies to small format printing (i.e. between 8.5x11” and 11x17” paper). The discount does not apply to large format print jobs (e.g. banners, a-frames, life size cut outs). Please contact Hokie Print directly for these requests.

**Please note, the Hokie Print discount is different from The Source product points which means you will have to pay for the copies you make.

  • Hokie Print only accepts payment via Hokie Passport. They can print a receipt in case your organization needs proof of purchase for a reimbursement.
