Originally conceived as an alternative and independent campus medium,
Vanguard Party's primary target audience remains college students
between the ages of 17 and 22 who attend school at Bethany
College, located in the northern panhandle of West Virginia.
Although Bethany is situated within reach Wheeling, Pittsburgh, Columbus,
and even Washington, D.C., its distance from the nearest city discouraging
to students. Bethany's isolation is an asset to the liberal arts education
to which it is commited; at the same time, however, it leaves the College's
constituents starving for entertainment, culture, and entertainment.
As a result of this audience's lack of access to information and shopping
Vanguard Party will be a tremendous asset not
only to businesses throughout the Ohio Valley area, but also to online
merchants and services.

audience to include subscribers from Pennsylvania to Florida, and continues
to gain readers through word of mouth and the internet.
Although efforts to increase circulation has depended on subscriptions,
Vanguard Party is eager to expand its free circulation base to include
other college towns in West Virginia. Aggressive plans to distribute
each issue freely in Morgantown, WV are currently underway.
