Royal Purple is supported by advertising from area businesses, campus programs and community organizations. The printed and online newspaper creates a laboratory learning experience for students to establish a permanent record of contemporary events throughout the campus and city. Royal Purple has editorial and advertising and multimedia student staff. It is guided by a faculty adviser with the support of an administrative assistant through the Department of Communication in the College of Arts & Communication.
