When a major news event, like yesterday's shootings at Northern Illinois University, hits a college campus, the student newspaper often becomes part of the story. Here are some articles about the Northern Star, NIU's student newspaper:
* The Herald News
* Arlington Heights Post
* CBS2 Chicago
Here's a column from a NIU alum who worked for the Northern Star and now writes for The Gazette in Iowa City.
And here's how the Collegiate Times, the student newspaper at Virginia Tech, editorialized about the Northern Illinois University shootings. Last April a man gunned down 32 people and then took his own life at the Blacksburg, Va. campus.
