The Toilet Paper

The USA Marketing Department publishes "The Toilet Paper" every week during the fall and spring semesters, and every other week during the summer. We receive numerous requests; therefore, space cannot always be guaranteed. Email the department at with the following information:

Poster Printing

The USA Marketing office's plotter can print large posters-- up to 24" wide and as long as the roll of paper will perŽmit! To expedite the printing process, bring the poster file (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator files are preferred) to the office on a jump drive. Your student organization's ASA account will be billed at the end of the month for the cost.

The Daily Collegian

The Daily Collegian is one of the most renowned university newspapers in the country and can be very beneficial for spreading the word for your organization. Student organizations receive a discounted rate when using an ASA purchase order. To qualify for the discounted rate, the organization must provide a purchase order to the Daily Collegian a minimum of two days before the advertisement run date. The cost of advertising is based on the number of column-inches.
