Are Student Newspapers Doing Better Or Worse These Days?

Yet, the same Romenesko post then points us to an article from Inside Higher Ed, claiming that the print journalism "squeeze" is hitting college campuses, citing stories of a few student newspapers that are scaling back their print operations. In some ways this appears to conflict with the earlier article, though there may be extenuating circumstances. For example, those news organizations don't seem to be scaling back their online operations -- just the physical paper operations, which could just be a sign of how college students prefer to interact with the news these days. There may also be more specific circumstances that have made it more difficult for those particular newspapers to bring in ad revenue, as compared to other college newspapers that seem to have been able to do just fine bringing in ad revenue. Either way, it sounds like most college news organizations are doing okay, and it's just a few that have stumbled.
