A desktop publishing lab featuring three Macintosh SE/30 computers, a LaserWriter pinter and Pagemaker software and funded by the VSA for authorized student publications—Left of Center, The Vassar Daily, Womanspeak, Unscrewed and Vassatire—opened on the 5th floor of Lathrop.  The editor-in-chief of Left of Center, Chris Kimm '91, who submitted the $15,000 proposal for the lab the previous semester, told The Miscellany News, "Some people turned me on to the idea of desktop publishing...and the Computer Center had Pagemaker, so together with a group of people, I fiddled with it and we produced a 20-page issue for about $1,000, which is approximately half of what we would have previously paid for an issue of that length."
