Newspaper Readership Program To Celebrate 20-Year Anniversary With Media Panel

Student Affairs and the Bellisario College of Communications will host a panel discussion featuring local and national journalists to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of Student Newspaper Readership Program. The panel will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, January 25 in Schwab Auditorium.

The event will include representation from each of the program’s four supported newspapers. New York Times reporter Stephanie Saul, USA TODAY assistant breaking news editor Katharine Lackey, Centre Daily Times executive editor John Roach, and The Daily Collegian editor-in-chief Sam Ruland will all sit on the panel, titled “News and Today’s College Students.” They’ll discuss how technology changes students’ relationship to news and global events.

The Student News Readership Program was instituted in 1997 by then-Penn State President Graham Spanier to “create opportunities [for students] to be more engaged citizens in their local community.” In addition to the panel on Thursday, information about the program’s print and digital news subscriptions will be available at tables in the HUB all week.
