The Other Press has been Douglas College’s student newspaper since 1976. Since 1978 we have been an autonomous publication, independent of the student union. Today we are a registered society under the Society Act of British Columbia, governed by a board of directors appointed by and from our staff. Our head office is located at the New Westminster campus.
The Other Press is published weekly during the fall and winter semesters, and monthly during the summer. We receive our funding from the student levy collected through tuition fees every semester at registration, and from local and national advertising revenue. The Other Press is a member of the Canadian University Press (CUP), a syndicate of the student newspapers that includes papers from all across Canada, as well as National University Wire (NUWire), a collective of student newspapers that shares content across Canada.
The Other Press reserves the right to choose what we will publish, and we will not publish material that is hateful, obscene, or that condones or promotes illegal activities. Submissions may be edited for clarity and brevity if necessary. All images used are copyright to their respective owners.
The best way to get involved is to come to our weekly meetings, which take place Mondays at 6 p.m. in Room 1020 at New Westminster Campus. You can meet with the section editors and help us plan this week’s issue. All interested students are welcome!
