Keep the newspaper program sign now

As students at a University reputed for its strong media and public affairs programs, we are deeply troubled by GWs decision to eliminate the free newspaper program next year.

The administration must reconsider its decision and try to find some sort of compromise besides the total elimination of the program. Reducing the amount of papers delivered, or limiting delivery to a few central campus locations, should be considered. If this is still too much of a financial burden, GW should try to negotiate a reduced subscription rate for the Post or Times for students.

Newspapers are the tools to success in todays information society. Newspaper readers are more active citizens, informed consumers, and lifelong learners. Having access to newspapers allows for various types of studentsthe type who would never take initiative to look up an article onlineto read the news daily. If GW wishes to truly prepare its students for the demands of the 21st Century, it needs to promote newspaper readership with the free program.
