UConn: Student newspapers must remain independent

After almost 90 years of existence, the Daily Campus over at the Southern Methodist University will no longer remain independent of the university because of funding concerns. Starting in May, the student media company that publishes the Daily Campus will close its doors and the newspaper will move over to SMU’s journalism department. The SMU Daily Campus is just one of many student newspapers across the country that has moved under the control of the university in recent years.

Today, this newspaper is joining hundreds of other student newspapers across the country as a part of Support Student Journalism Day in order to #SaveStudentNewsrooms and express the need for independent student newspapers.
