first_imgThe New York Times readership program has been renewed, giving USC students access to the daily newspaper on campus and online starting next week.Read all about it · The New York Times is now available for students at Tutor Campus Center, the Annenberg School and Leavey Library. – Kevin Fohrer | Daily Trojan“The New York Times readership program was started in the spring semester of 2013,” said Michael Yoshimura, USG’s director of Academic Affairs. “When we looked over the budget for the spring semester, it made sense to continue it.”In order to expand its readership base, The New York Times offers discounts to student organizations at major universities.“[The New York Times education staff] gave us a presentation on their readership program, and it sounded like a great way for students to learn what’s going on outside USC,” Yoshimura said.Physical copies of the daily paper will be placed in special racks near Leavey Library, the Ronald Tutor Campus Center and the Annenberg School each week from Monday to Friday. The directors say this spring’s distribution is an increase from last semester’s.“We’re actually getting more copies now, as well as a new online subscription,” said Logan Burkhead, USG’s assistant director of Academic Affairs.USG has registered for 200 digital licenses per day, which students can obtain by going to nytimes.com/passes  and registering with their USC email address. Students logging in will be given 24-hour access to subscriber content on the website.Yoshimura and Burkhead hope this new feature will increase the subscription’s popularity and result in even more educational opportunities for USC students in months to come.“We want to extend the program in the future,” Burkhead said. “We’re hoping to have an actual New York Times columnist come in by the end of the semester and give a presentation to students.”The directors believe that in comparison to other papers, such as the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times offers the “best package” to college students.“It seems like The New York Times is an elite publication, and it deals on a national scale,” Yoshimura said. “And considering everything else they’re giving us, they really set themselves apart.”last_img read more
