The Western Front is published once a week each quarter every Tuesday, with the exception of Monday holidays. Western Weekend is published once a week each quarter every Thursday.  The Western Front is the official newspaper of Western Washington University, published by the Student Publications Council and is mainly supported by advertising. Opinions and stories in the newspaper have no connection with advertising. News content is determined by student editors. Staff reporters are enrolled in a course in the department of journalism, but any student enrolled at Western may offer stories to the editors.

Advertising inquiries should be directed to the business office by e-mail at wwu.westernfront@gmail.com or by phone at 360-650-3160.

Members of the Western community are entitled to a single free copy of each issue of The Western Front.
