The Omega is Thompson Rivers University’s independent student newspaper. It is published on a weekly basis and hits the stands on Wednesday mornings.

The Omega is the student newspaper run by the Cariboo Student Newspaper Society, a registered non-profit society. All students of Thompson Rivers University in good standing are active members of the society. The Board of Governors who represents the society meets monthly to oversee the publication.

Mission Statement

The Omega’s goal is to keep the TRU community educated and informed. The Omega is committed to ethical reporting and follows Canadian standards of quality journalism.

Fees & Operating Costs

Through TRU tuition fees, The Omega collects the equivalent of $0.64 per credit (to a max of $5.76 per semester) from each student, which contributes to The Omega’s base operating costs.

The remainder of The Omega’s annual revenue comes from paid advertising, as seen in the newspaper.
