UVISION SEEKING ADS TO STAY AFLOAT

The University of the Virgin Islands student publication UVISION will not publish its last two issues of the academic year unless its faculty adviser can raise $2,500 to pay for printing, photo processing and distribution.
Jean Etsinger, faculty adviser for the student newspaper and journalism professor at UVI, said she was notified verbally on March 25 and via e-mail on March 30 that funding was not available for publication of the last two issues of the semester scheduled
April 14 and 28.
Etsinger said, "UVISION is both a learning laboratory for UVI journalism students and, I believe, a widely read and welcome medium of mass communication within the university community. Therefore it is my intention to publish the final two issues as scheduled by finding alternative funding."
Etsinger is calling upon the media and business community to place advertising in the last two issues to cover the cost of publication.
She is also seeking a special allocation from the UVI Student Activities Fee fund on the St. Thomas campus.
The largest portion of the publication cost is printing, which runs about $1,500, according to Etsinger. UVISION is printed by the Daily News Publishing Co. Etsinger said Ed Crouch, spokesperson for the Daily News, told her the Daily News would help her out.
"But he didn't say exactly what that meant," Etsinger said.
Advertising rates range from $20 for a business card size ad to $276.25 for a full page.
Anyone wishing to place advertising should call 693-1359 or fax 693-1355 or e-mail to
