Print Circulation

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.
