You can register for access to the New York Times one with your Rochester email address. Each day, 90 students will be able to log on for free, recycling after 24 hours.
We also would like to remind students to read, reuse, and recycle: when you are done with your paper, please return it to the rack.
The program was piloted in 2006 and kicked off in 2007 thanks to the efforts of the Students’ Association. The Collegiate Readership Program is jointly funded by the Parents’ Council, River Campus Libraries and the Students’ Association, and is administered by the SA Projects and Services Committee. In early 2009, the Projects and Services Committee conducted an analysis of the program, and redistributed the papers based on student readership. The Committee also secured some extra funding from the College to increase the number of papers on campus.
