Students refuse to pay more for newspaper

Come on, kids! You don’t have a few bucks for the campus newspaper?

Facing financial difficulties due to a poor economy and shrinking advertising dollars, the Daily Campus recently asked students if they would pay $3 more per semester in fees to keep getting the newspaper. By a 266-vote margin — 1,549 to 1,815 — students voted no.

The Daily campus reports: “While the provost makes the official decision on the fee increase, [the student government president] said it is very rare for them to go against student-voted fee increases.”

    Kids (today) don’t read newspapers.
    Even when their parents read one or more every day, the kids don’t.
