SOURCE: Student Picks Up Copy of Collegian, Actually Reads It

Multiple sources have confirmed to Onward State that a student in the HUB has picked up a copy of The Daily Collegian and actually read it.

The student — whose name cannot be confirmed but is assumed to be a freshman — reportedly picked up a copy of the paper, thumbed through it, walked over to a table, and began to read.

“This is just unthinkable,” Marvin Kolarov (junior – chemical engineering) said. “I don’t know anyone who’s read the Collegian in years!”

“He looked happy,” Gloria Negredo (senior – biology) said. “Have you seen the paper lately? I think he was a masochist.”

After 10 minutes of skimming through the paper, the student “had a really confused look on his face,” then proceeded to put the paper back.

According to Jason Touré (sophomore – marketing), “He kept the crossword puzzle, and there was a little mark on the front page from when some of his Orange Chicken from Panda Express fell off of his fork and landed on the paper.”

“I’m so proud that students are reading the school paper,” Collegian Editor-in-Chief Brittany Horn (senior – journalism) said. “I really just couldn’t be more proud.”

The Daily Collegian would not confirm its circulation number to Onward State, instead referring us to its advertising packet that uses statistics from 2009.
