The Student Handbook is given out at Orientation to first year students (and is available free of charge to returning students at any time in the school year). We print thousands of copies each year, and we typically distribute almost every copy we print.
For 2020 and 2021 - in these socially-distanced times - we redesigned the Handbook and mailed it out directly to every first year student. The new design has been well received, so we expect to keep it... and hopefully in 2022 we will be able to hand the books out in person at Orientation!
The redesigned Handbook is shorter, which means there's less advertising space, so be sure to get your order in early!
The Handbook is designed with students' needs in mind. In addition to a daytimer/planner, it contains detailed information about the UASU and about the university, including key dates. Many students use their handbooks for the entire academic year, making it an excellent medium to get long-lasting exposure.
Advertising in the Student Handbook closes at the end of April, but there's always competition for key spots like the covers, so get your request in early: this is a proven medium that sells out every year.
