Northwestern

Carolina

Penn State (But I may be wrong),,,so I'll agree with Arizona State.

It's posted on Princeton Review somewhere.

The Kenyon Review isn't a newspaper, but it's a highly respected literary publication, and because Kenyon is such an undergrad-oriented place, the students there have huge opportunities to take part.

lol no Kazz, I'm not interested in reading other schools newspapers, I'm interested in participating in my school newspaper, and I am thinking of doing journalism, so I am trying to narrow it down to schools which have good campus papers and good opportunities for its students to take part in them.

I'm pretty sure the Princeton Review has rankings of college newspapers, however, I can't post a link here, so I suggest that you go on the website and search.

Well, according to Princeton Review...they have it in this order:

Carolina (WHO HOO!!!)
Northwestern
UPENN
Arizona State
Yale

I have to admit though. I am a Wildcat fan only because I was going to apply. I'm positive I would have got in however, once I realized the distance between NJ and IL, and the weather...oh yea,,,and the price, I changed my mind and applied to the NEXT school down.

I would keep both of the schools on the list; Each school offers something different. Previously though, I remember Penn State being on the list.

"I have to admit though. I am a Wildcat fan"

-I am too

"once I realized the distance between NJ and IL"

-About as far as the distance from PA to IL. LOL

Duke Chronicle.

LOL @ Kk19131, yes and that's definitely far beyond my distance limit.

I'm not going to hate, the Duke Chronicle is a good newspaper, but they need to change that shade of blue in their colors to the only TRUE Carolina blue.

Before it outgrew its base, The Onion founded at UW Madison was the most unique and best college paper ever.

By Cama (Cama) on Thursday, August 12, 2004 - 05:32 pm: Edit

I thought UMass Amherst is the most read

does pomona have one, and if so, is it good?

By Virtue_Summer (Virtue_Summer) on Thursday, August 12, 2004 - 11:10 pm: Edit

Chico State's newspaper, The Orion, is supposed to be pretty good. The National Newspaper Association named it the nation's best college newspaper in 2002.

It doesn't really matter. You join it and make it good. A future employer or graduate school will look at your clips, not the reputation of the paper whose staff changes every year.
