College Media

Occupy Wall Street coverage in the student media

UPDATE: A sympathetic protest has sprung up called OccupyColleges. Here is their Facebook page.

The past several weeks, protesters have occupied Zuccotti Park near Wall Street in New York City. There have been scuffles with police, and arrests on the Brooklyn Bridge. The protests have taken the name OccupyWallStreet.

Many of the protesters appear to be young people, college students or recent graduates, who are upset about the state of the economy and their job prospects.

Which makes this a story for college media. I’m starting to keep a log of some of the coverage of the protests, which appear to be spreading to other cities.

If your student outlet has covered this protest movement, e-mail me a link to scmurley -at- or send it via Twitter to @cicm.
