Student Life to implement direct newspaper delivery system
The program, piloted last April, will bring copies of the newspaper to front doors in Washington University residential spaces starting Thursday, Sept. 5.
The new system “will get the paper in the hands of students and better serve their needs,” Ray Bush, general manager of Student Life, said.
The goal is to have the newspapers delivered before students would leave for morning classes.
Initially, the direct delivery system was implemented in Park and Mudd Houses on the South 40, as well as in Village East on the North Side.
Response from the students involved in the pilot program has been primarily positive.
“I thought it was great; I’m usually rushing for class so I don’t have much time to pick up the paper normally,” senior Carly Waldman, a resident of Village East last semester, said.
