Hatchet’s #17!

So College Publisher, which provides the software to The Hatchet’s Web site, has started ranking college paper sites by hits. The Hatchet’s #17 among College Publisher’s over 300 sites, which is really impressive, considering we are the only non-daily in a top-30 that includes only daily papers from mostly state schools with HUGE student populations. Also impressive since hits on the blog site are not included in the rankings.
