Pink newspapers have made their way to dining halls — for a limited time only.

The Financial Times informed Brown Dining Services of a promotion taking place on several campuses in which they offer the newspaper at no cost for several weeks, Peter Rossi, associate director of Dining Services, wrote in an e-mail to The Herald.

Student reactions varied widely. While Nicholas Rosholt '10 described the transition as "frickin' sweet," Chris Westley '11 said he "hadn't noticed" it was now available, despite the fact it lay on his table. Sam Woolford '10, who also had it next to him, said he had "never read the Financial Times."

John Prah '12, who carried the Times to his table, said, "I'm not complaining," and considered the move "good," though he commented, "the Ratty needs the New York Times more regularly."

Overall, students seemed to favor the New York Times. "I usually read the New York Times, Providence Journal or the Daily Herald," Westley said, and Annie Wick '13 said of newspapers in general, "I don't read them anyway, and I definitely wouldn't pick up the Financial Times. Actually, I do read the New York Times, but if I cared enough I'd read it online."

Dining Services does not plan to offer the paper once the promotion is completed, Rossi wrote.
