Student Newspapers in Transition.
Rivers, William L.; Sellers, Leonard
The 1970s may someday be considered the period of independence for the collegiate press. More and more college and university newspapers are breaking ties with their institutions and moving off campus. However, many of these papers desiring independence also want financial support from their institutions without the administrative control that has traditionally accompanied such aid. Administrators as well as student editors can learn hard lessons about the dangers of complete independence by studying the ailing condition of most student-founded papers trying to challenge established student papers.
