Support Student Media at Texas A&M

Battalion staffers Bobby O’Brien, Megan Williams, and Noah Van Est prepare for the Friends of The Battalion alumni tailgate in Aggie Park on Saturday, Sept. 2.

Want to support the student media experience at Texas A&M?

By supporting student media, you are helping our students and student organization with:

-Attending local, state and national conferences to network with industry professionals, attend journalism trainings, and participate in valuable contest experiences
-Paying freelance staffers for their writing, design, photo, video, graphics, and social media contributions to help with their living expenses, cost of college, etc.
-Obtaining small quipment purchases such as SD cards, batteries, and other photo/video equipment our team needs throughout the year for storytelling and coverage

There’s three different ways you can help The Battalion newspaper and website, The Aggieland Yearbook, along with Maroon Life magazine through our student media operation. We have been incredibly fortunate over the last few years to have such loyal, gracious donors and supporters in our corner.
