Student News Deserts

The financial struggles of local newspapers have led many to shut down in recent years, creating news deserts where information of the public interest is not available to some communities. The same is true of student publications and college and university  communities they serve.

In an effort to chronicle student publications that have shut down, we will be keeping a running list below. If you know of a paper that has shut down, please send us that information via our contact form. Please include proof the publication existed, either through live or archived links or photos of prior print editions. 

Student Publications That Have Shut Down:

  • The Broadside – Central Oregon Community College in Bend, OR – Reported by The Bulletin
  • The Central Florida Future – University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL – Reported by the Student Press Law Center
