UC Irvine's campus newspaper will stay in print thanks to students who approved a new registration fee at the ballot box this week.
Staff of the New University student newspaper had been campaigning for a 99-cent per quarter fee to finance printing, warning that the paper could fold in a year otherwise.
They won a reprieve Tuesday.
More than 72% of student voters approved the fee, which amounts to about $3 per year per student.
"I definitely was glad to see that there's more support for us than I thought," said the newspaper's student editor Jessica Pratt.
