Want to Get to Know a College? Read their Campus Newspapers or Magazines

Tufts Collegiate magazine

Visiting a college is a great way to learn more about them, but online research can be a great way to discover the hot button issues on a campus. Recently I learned about one campus's "disgusting dorm" and what the students planned to do about it from their school paper. I also read about another college's plan to take away the "free laundry" benefit and the students' protests in favor of keeping it. Try to pick up a copy of the campus paper while on a tour, but most are available online. Here are a few popular college newspapers:

The Bucknellian (Bucknell University)
The Exponent (Purdue University)
The Lantern (Ohio State University)
The Daily Tar Heel (UNC Chapel Hill)
