The Westernizer is distributed to students when they pick up their bus passes throughout Orientation Week. Students must come in person to receive their bus pass by presenting their Western One student card and photo ID. This distribution method ensures that the Westernizer will be given to students within the first week of school. 19,000 copies of the Westernizer are distributed in the University Community Centre, the central hub for students on campus. Alternately, If the student elects not to pick up his/her bus pass, the Westernizer day planner is also available at Mustang Central, an information kiosk in the UCC.


The Advertising & Marketing Office of the University Students’ Council utilizes various media sources on campus to promote the Westernizer and its usage all year round. Some media sources include print ads in the Gazette student newspaper, posters throughout campus, CHRW radio ads, USC websites, Twitter, and slides in the Western Film pre-show.
