Abstract

This study looks into news consumption patterns of college students and how to adapt news dissemination practices to effectively reach out and inform college students. This research project will provide insight on how college students consume media and how they prefer to obtain news to be informed in the golden age of mobile technology. College students are turning away from traditional news platforms and turning to online and social media platforms (Pew Research Center, 2012). The findings will inform suggestions on how to tailor online news to fit the wants of college students, through a campus-wide survey at Iowa State University, individual interviews, and analyzation of top news agencies using online platforms.
