Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis

Abstract

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first comparative study conducted regarding the student publications for the three Iowa Regents' universities. The data collected shows that the three publications are not as different in terms of content as many of their readers seem to believe. As the data reflects, the Northern Iowan is significantly more campus-centered in its coverage. However, the difference is not so significant that the staff of the Northern Iowan could not increase its national and international coverage to make it more comparable to the other two newspapers. I hope this research can be of use to the staff at the Northern Iowan in making the publication the best it can possibly be and in making it an informative, widely read publication that can be of use to both the campus and the Cedar Falls community as a whole.
