Got A College Thesis? HuffPo Might Just Print It.

By Zachary Sniderman

Didn’t know that HuffPo was doing this until Ms. Huffington Post came to speak at the J-school this past Wednesday (April 7th). Huffington spoke about the incredible theses being produced across the nation before deadpanning: “and who actually reads them?” Rather than slip into oblivion, HuffPo has taken some theses and started running them on their site under the “College” section. The suicide of one Cornell student in mid-March prompted them to run this thesis by Rob Fishman titled “Cornell Suicides: Do Ithaca’s Gorges Invite Jumpers?” It’s a sort of morbid way to start the initiative but laudable all the same. It will be interesting, moving forward, if the theses will need news pegs or if the quality of their thought will be enough to get them published.
