The Many Values of Print Media

What can you can learn by reading the newspaper every day and discussing it with a diverse group of thoughtful people? How do different newspapers handle the same stories? Find out over Winter Break! Students and faculty members will meet each day for one week, read the daily New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Minneapolis Star-Tribune from 9am–12pm, break for lunch, and return for an afternoon of lively discussion. Walking breaks twice a day also give participants a chance to stretch their legs and explore the East Bank campus (and its tunnel system)
