Why SUPPORT The Olaf Messenger?

Your money helps us pay for…

  • Printing costs. During a regular school year we print 500 copies of The Messenger each week. These are distributed to St. Olaf students and staff free of charge, and some of them are sent to you!
  • Postage to send you your shiny new copy of the Messenger.
  • Fellowships for our talented staff members. Even though we’re a weekly paper, work doesn’t stop in the newsroom. Fellowships are a small way of saying thank you for all of the hard work our staff puts into the paper every week. The Messenger is entirely student-run and we rely heavily on your support to keep us printing. Not only are you paying for weekly St. Olaf news, sports coverage, performance reviews, and student art, but you’re helping support students who are working towards careers in journalism, media, business, and communications.
