Print Circulation

Eat BCS is included in every copy of The Scene 3 times per year

Over 20,000 copies of each issue of the The Scene are made available FREE to students, faculty, and staff at Texas A&M University and Blinn College. Distribution occurs through high traffic events like back-to-school book rush, “on the door” delivery to student apartments and dorm suites, as well as through hundreds of take-one rack locations on campus, at shuttle stops, on Northgate, at dorms and student communities, and other locations hand-picked for their high student traffic. The majority of the copies are distributed in the first few weeks of classes at the start of the Fall, Spring and Summer Sessions. Racks are replenished all semester long.

Eat BCS is included in every copy of the Research Valley Press 4 times per year

Copies of the Research Valley Press are distributed directly to every driveway in many of Bryan-College Station’s best neighborhoods, packed in heat-sealed, transparent polyurethane bags. Neighborhoods reached with 100% saturation include Pebble Creek, Miramount, Indian Lakes, Peach Creek, and the Castlegate subdivisions. Select homes, ones that appear owner occupied and higher income, in areas like College Hills, College Station’s Historic District, and Downtown Bryan receive copies. Approximately 2,000 businesses in Bryan, College Station, and surrounding areas receive from 1 to 5 copies for their employees employees and customers. About 300 public news-stands, hotel lobbies, and waiting rooms in local businesses are stocked with between 10 and 50 “take one” copies.

The Press is tailored to those living and working in the Brazos Valley long term, its sister publication, The Scene, distributes in a similar manner to the local campus communities.
