One week prior to College Radio Day 2016, college radio students and advisors from across the country traveled to the White House to interview administration officials such as Secretary of Education John King Jr. and Press Secretary Josh Earnest regarding issues important to the students and their college campuses: college affordability, student loans, and climate change. At the conclusion of their visit they were presented with a letter from President Obama expressing that "college radio holds a crucial and unique place on the dial. … It's not only a proving ground for young people; it's an opportunity for all Americans to experience new stories, new bands, and new ideas." The students produced a special College Radio Day White House report to be included in the simulcast on November 4. The aim of College Radio Day is to raise greater awareness of the many student radio stations that operate around the world by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so on this day. Stations across the country are planning special programming and events that include live music from local artists, on-campus festivities and inviting alumni back onto the airwaves.
