Why the Excelsior and Kingsman papers are so small

Just a few years ago the college papers were 24 pages long. Now there as small as 8 pages. This is a worldwide problem. Some reasons are more Internet reading and 2/3rds of the college works. More reasons were in our past article on “Where are the great writers hiding?”. Many papers have folded and many left NY after 911. Of the 50 colleges in the NYC only half have papers and few have as many as BC.
Even though the BC papers are smaller there may be more quality. They are more BC news than past semesters where they took a lot of stories off wire services and wrote about non BC news off the top of their head without physically covering a story. Adapting is vital. The chamelian outlasted the dinosaur.
