Collegiate Readership Program

The "USA Today Collegiate Readership Program" is Augustana's free newspaper program, funded by the Augustana Student Association (ASA). Copies of the Argus Leader and USA Today newspapers are available every weekday at two locations in the Morrison Commons.  

Augustana's "Collegiate Readership Program" was piloted in 2007 and kicked off in 2008. The mission of the program is to enhance the learning environment on campus by encouraging students to read newspapers, promoting critical thinking and an awareness of current events.

The ASA politely reminds faculty, staff and college guests that the free newspapers are provided for students and are not available to others. Students are reminded to read, reuse, and recycle. Please return papers to the distribution racks in the Commons so that more students may have the opportunity to read the paper.
