Campus Times (CT)

The Campus Times newspaper is located in 102 Wilson Commons and can be reached at 275.5942. The Edi­tor-in-Chief can be reached at: editor@campustimes.org. If you have a news item such as a meeting, speech, or rally you can contact a news editor at: ctnews3@gmail.com. If you have a features item such as a cultural show, performance, or other entertainment event, contact a features editor at: campustimesae@gmail.com.

Publicity

If you do not have a budget for publicity, there are some ways you can advertise your event at no charge. You can request inclusion in the events calendar of the news section by contacting the news editor. You could also pitch your event or cause to a CT editor through one of the following:

  • Email either the Editor-in-Chief or news editor as described above
  • Call the CT at 275.5942
  • Stop in to the CT office in 102 Wilson Commons

Be prepared to give details about your event or cause including: who, what, where, when, and why. Keep in mind that due to space constraints, not all events are able to be publicized.

Paid Advertising

If you have a budget for advertising, you can place an ad in the CT. They will accept ads that you have already created, but the SA Graphic Artist is also available to help create ads for you! Ads may be purchased in full, half, quarter, and one-eighth of a page sizes. Specific dimensions can be found at www.campustimes.org/advertising. Notification of an ad request is due to the CT office by Thursday at 5pm before the publication of the next Thursday’s edition. Payment (usually on an internal/blue requisition) and ad copy are due to the CT office by Tuesday at noon for that Thursday’s edition. Another option is to place online advertising on the CT website (www.campustimes.org). For either option, you can contact the Campus Times at 275.5943 for rates or the business manager at campustimesads@gmail.com. Details and rates can be found in our Local & Campus Media Kit online at www.campustimes.org/advertising.
