Government brings in newspapers
ANDREA LEE, CONTRIBUTOR
Beginning this Monday, the Bowdoin Student Government
will be providing students with complimentary newspapers during the month
of February. The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and USA
Today will be available Monday through Friday at Coles Tower, Hyde
Hall, Chamberlain Hall, Baxter House, and Thorne Dining Hall.
This pilot program is intended to help the Student Government
decide whether to continue the program on a smaller scale, based on student
response and available financial resources.
"Although the program only lasts a month, the Student
Government hopes that it will be worthwhile for the community," said Jeff
Favolise '01, chair of the Student Executive Board. "We strongly believe
that this will help students learn more about the world outside of Bowdoin."
There will also be recycling containers near the newspaper
The members of the Student Government are eager to hear
feedback. Please contact a representative or visit the Student Government
website at www.bowdoin.edu/studgov.
There will also be a survey about this program taken at the beginning
of next week in both Thorne Dining Hall and Smith Union.
