LIMITATIONS  The lack of students’ knowledge about the Monadnock Ledger Tab section.  Time  Lack of knowledge of SPSS  Students’ lack of interest in responding to surveys

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS Our research demonstrated that the Monadnock Ledger does not meet the needs of FPC students. In addition our research shows that there are several areas of interest that students would like to see addressed in the Tab section. The majority of students were interested in information about off- campus/area events and campus sports. The majority of students would be interested in reading the Tab section if it was offered online and/or distributed more widely around campus, and specifically in the campus center.
