Staying connected with local, national and world news is as easy as swiping a card or clicking a link.
The Penn State Newspaper Readership Program lets students swipe their ID+ cards and read the Centre Daily Times, New York Times or USA Today in addition to The Daily Collegian. It also gives students unlimited access to CentreDaily.com for the latest breaking news and Penn State sports updates.
“It’s great this program allows us to connect with students,” said Centre Daily Times president and publisher Debra Leithauser. “Coverage of local and world events, paired with discussion on campus and in classrooms about these happenings, is essential. Creating a student population that can think critically about how to improve their life, their town and the world is in the best interest of all of us.”
The Penn State Newspaper Readership Program was launched in 1997 and quickly became the model for nearly 500 campuses nationwide. It was developed to help connect students with the community and the world.
In addition to picking up the daily newspaper at 39 campus locations, Penn State students now also have unlimited access to centredaily.com content. Through our digital component in the Penn State Student Newspaper Readership Program, students can check out stories, photos, and video coverage related to all that happens at Penn State and in the surrounding community.
