The New York Times at John Jay
SASP is sponsoring several programs to increase the availability of newspapers to students on campus and to encourage a campus conversation of current affairs issues. We believe the mission of John Jay College, with students as “advocates for justice,” is only possible when students are informed, engaged, and ethical citizens. With this in mind, SASP offers various co-curricular initiatives related to The New York Times, including reading drives, current affairs discussions, contests, and speaker events.

|ny||The New York Times in the First Year
As part of our readership initiative, many of our First Year Seminars and Learning Communities participate in The New York Times in the First Year Program. Students in participating courses each receive a digital subscription of The New York Times and use the digital paper as part of their course. Additionally, students in First Year Seminars and Learning Communities not directly participating in the initiative periodically receive free copies of The New York Times throughout the semester.
|Weeks of Reading
Weeks of Reading is a month-long reading celebration at the start of the fall semester. Each day, FYE peer mentors hand out free copies of The New York Times and encourage students to respond to current events questions on the FYE Facebook page. Participating students enter a daily raffle drawing to win prizes. Check back here for Weeks of Reading in 2013.
|Weekly 'Times Talk'
The Times Talk is a weekly series of cookies and conversation with Professor Greg Donaldson. Each week, Professor Donaldson hosts a current events discussion in his office, room 336-17T, and students receive a free copy of The New York Times. Fall 2012 dates include 10/10, 10/24, 10/31, 11/7, 11/28, 12/5, and 12/12.
