This website provides a platform for college students to share their voice. 90% of the content is student generated content, where contributing writers from college across the country and collegiate correspondents share their thoughts on news & current events from their perspective, about topics that are important and relevant to them. Students writing for www.usatodaycollege.com are either contributing writers or Collegiate Correspondents. It also houses all the additional Collegiate Readership Academic Resources such as Case Studies that go along with the Collegiate Readership Program – located under Readership Program on the top toolbar. Collegiate Correspondent Program is one of the nation’s premier journalism opportunities for undergraduate students. Relevant writing experience combines with professional training and advice from seasoned journalists. Correspondent writing is the backbone of the USA TODAY COLLEGE. Participants in the program have had their work published in USA TODAY’s print edition as well as outlets across Gannett. They offer Spring, Fall and Summer versions of the program. Please feel free to take advantage of these opportunities.

Getting settled into a new location often makes families keenly aware of the valuable personal items like Ipods, laptops, cell phones, television, and bicycles that students bring to school. Unfortunately, these items sometimes end up lost, damaged, or stolen. Regardless of whether you live on or off campus, the University does not cover the loss of these items or damage you may cause to University property. You are responsible for these losses. Students should check with their parent or guardian to see if their belongings are covered under their homeowner's insurance policy or purchase private renter's insurance. Most homeowner's insurance policies do cover personal belongings for students, HOWEVER, the policy deductible will apply (usually over $1000) and claims may cause your premiums to go up.
Drury recommends a College Renters Insurance Policy from Sallie Mae (www.salliemaeinsurance.com/protectmystuff) or National Student Services, INC. (www.nssi.com). Both offer affordable renter's insurance policies tailored to college students with low deductibles. Go to the websites listed or stop by the Residence Life Office in FSC 108 for more information.
