College Newspaper Struggles To Stay Afloat



College newspapers are not immune to the financial struggles faced by media outlets across the country. One student paper, The Daily Illini at the University of Illinois, is trying to stay afloat. The independant from the school newspaper has published since 1871. Alumni and journalist world wide have joined in the fight to save the Illini, among them one time editor in chief, Chicago Sun Times and PBS film reviewer Rodger Ebert.

something like this being published at a normal college is more of a hobby. something fun to do on the side. while i comepletly believe in the importance of art, and having art in education, if i want to persue art i would go to an art school not throw a big fit or fight to save it.

Art Schools do not teach as comprehensively as a four year school or university. Art requires a full liberal education. Art schools often take your money and provide little or no real art training or the passion that should behind art.
