College newspapers thriving

Could the fact that 71 percent of college students read their campus newspaper offer a glimmer of hope to a dying newspaper industry?

Maybe there is a lesson here: It is not news on paper that turns off young readers, but the nature and relevancy of the content? That’s not necessarily a startling revelation, but the success of college papers might offer a guide on how to reinvent community newspapers.

Or maybe campus life is just a unique microclimate that the lessons are nontransferable to the world outside?
