Ask Aggie

I was wondering how many Battalions are produced each day and where the money comes from to fund the printing.
Dear Ask Aggie,
I was wondering how many Battalions are produced each day and where the money comes from to fund the printing.
Thank you,
Emily Robbinson
Dear Emily,
To answer the first part of your question, I asked Robert Wegener, general manager of Student Media in the Department of Journalism.
“We print 22,000 Battalions every day in the fall and the spring semesters,” Wegener said. “In the summer, we print 11,500 every school day.”
During special events, such as the upcoming 125th anniversary of Texas A&M, more papers will be printed because of more demand, Wegener said.
To answer the second part of your question, about 99 percent of the funding for The Battalion comes from advertising. The rest comes from you – the student – on your fee statement as part of the Student Services Fee. Each student pays on 50 cents each year to The Battalion, Wegener says. What a deal! Thanks for the questions Emily.
Keep the questions coming!!
