Boston Marathon Blasts: Student Newspaper Front Pages

Below is a screenshot sampling of student newspaper front pages that led with reports on yesterday’s Boston Marathon explosions.  On spec, the fronts of many campus pubs devoted at least some space to Boston-based news — either a report on the attack overall or a localized version focused on students, staff and alumni who were in Boston when it happened or have direct ties to the city. 

My personal favorites, at this point: The Daily O’Collegian at Oklahoma State University and The News Record at the University of Cincinnati.

To add your own outlet’s front page to the mix, email or tweet me ASAP.
