Advertise

Advertising with The Bates Student is a great way to let our 1,400 print readers know about your business or program each week. The Student is distributed free of charge and read by our neighbors in Lewiston, as well as faculty, staff, students, and alumni or Bates College. We publish every Wednesday while the College is in session except for exam weeks and certain weeks before and after vacations, averaging 20 issues per year. Our pages are 22 inches high by 12-1/4 inches wide. We run five 2-1/8 inch columns per page, with a length of approximately 8-12 pages per week. Our coverage includes all aspects of life in both the local and college communities with News, Arts, Forum, and Sports sections. We are happy to accept ads via email (.tiff format or as a .pdf file), on CD, or on flash drives.
