“I’ve always been an online, gadget, electronic type of person so I wasn’t into reading paper, books, newspapers etc…so everything I would do was online. Sometimes instead of watching the news I will go online and read it instead. If I see the MATC Times on campus I’ll pick it up and read it. I used to work at the downtown campus and we had a Times stand right outside our office so I would read it whenever it came out. I would read it cover to cover even if the article didn’t pertain to my interest, I would still read it just because it was there and I saw it.”

Over the past 60 years, with the exception of quantity, distribution of the MATC Times to its readers has not changed. Racks are conveniently located at each campus for students, staff, faculty, and visitors to snap up and consume whenever they like. The high print quality of the award winning publication seemingly draws the reader in, while the student pro duced content keeps them reading.
In keeping with the modern age, the paper also has digital content at www.matctimes360.com. We recently polled the MATC community to see if they have a preference over ready their college paper digitally or in a printed format. The majority of individuals we spoke to appear to prefer the printed edition when it comes to catching up on school related news. Most agreed that when they see the paper on campus they read it cover to cover. Others said they use their electronic devices for too many other tasks and simply enjoy reading newsprint as a change of pace and hopes it stays that way. Here is what some individuals had to say about the topic.
