The Vertical Advertising

The Vertical is fully self-funded through advertising, sponsorship, and donations. Your support for the Vertical helps print the newspaper,  provides funds for equipment and supplies, and provide opportunities for students outside of the classroom including involvement in journalistic associations and competitions.

The Vertical is published five times per year. Five issues are printed, distributed to students, and emailed to the Nease faculty and student body. Our publication schedule is subject to change, but our planned issues for the 2017-2018 school year are:
