Free College Newspaper Advertising

Bloomington, MN (June 29, 2010) — In its annual effort to provide PSA placement in college newspapers for organizations looking to reach college students, Campus Media Group has begun accepting applications for this year’s College Newspaper PSA Program.

College YouthEvery year, Campus Media selects one nonprofit organization that has an important message to share with college students. Campus Media will work to have that organization’s PSA ad placed in some of the nation’s top college and university newspapers free of charge for the 2010-2011 school year. Hundreds of college newspapers throughout the United States participated last year, giving away more than $100,000 in free advertising.

Campus Media is a leading college marketing agency that represents more than 1,800 college newspapers nationally. Its extensive experience working to place ads for national brands has gained the agency solid credibility in college media outlets. “We have great relationships with campus newspapers, and they have always been very generous in providing ad space for our PSA program,” says Joel Eisfelder, Director of Media for Campus Media.

In previous years, Campus Media has worked to build awareness for organizations such as: amfAR, The Campus Kitchens Project, the National Council on Problem Gambling, the National Psoriasis Foundation, and the National Students of AMF.

Staci Barfield, Executive Director of the National Students of AMF Support Network, says, “Campus Media Group was great to work with. Their coverage in college newspapers across the country was terrific, and the number of inquiries generated as a result of the PSA campaign has been phenomenal.”

This program is open to nonprofit organizations in the U.S. Those organizations looking for national exposure to a college audience about a cause that will resonate with students are encouraged to apply.
