New York Times Now Available for Mount Union Students

February 28, 2007

Through the Center for Public Service at Mount Union, the New York Times is now available at several locations on campus.

 According to The Dynamo, Andrew Ricci, student senate president, has been working to form a partnership between the New York Times and Mount Union to establish a college readership program on campus. Through the Center of Public Service, funds were made available and this readership program became a reality.

There are 200 copies of the New York Times now delivered to campus five times a week, Monday through Friday. The New York Times are available for pick up at the students' convenience in the Hoover-Price Campus Center and Kolenbrander-Harter Information Center, free of charge.

According to The Dynamo, Ricci says he will be making speakers and other resources available to enrich and promote an atmosphere of knowledge on campus. This will include not only speakers and weekly current events discussions moderated by different faculty members each week, but also other promotions and resources as incentives to read the New York Times.

'It is my hope that faculty members will be able to utilize the New York Times in their classes, regardless of their individual discipline,' Ricci said.

According to Ricci, these discussions may cover a number of topics, including politics, the arts, business, science and international events.

'It is often said that a successful society depends on a well-informed electorate, and in many ways, this is true. It is my hope that this opportunity will serve to increase public knowledge and raise the level of discussion and debate on campus,' said Ricci.
