Established in 1880, The
Cornell Daily Sun
is one of the nation’s oldest, fully independent daily
college newspapers. The Sun is the largest paper at Cornell, reaching an estimated
readership of 16,000, and is distributed for free in over fifty locations
around campus, including dining halls, academic facilities and dormitories, as
well as in Collegetown and the surrounding Ithaca
area. More than 57% of students read The Sun at least twice a week, and more
than 66% of our readers indicate that advertisements in The Sun have prompted them to make purchases. This type of exposure to Cornell’s academic
and social community is not available with any other publication on campus or
in the greater Ithaca region.


Advertisers can place display or classified advertisements
in the print edition of The Cornell Daily
. Advertisements in The Sun range from business card-size
ads to quarter-page and full-page ads.
Additionally, advertisements can be run in colored or non-colored
variants on nearly any page of the newspaper.
Discounted rates are available to contracted advertisers (weekly or open
rates available), clubs and organizations that advertise through the Student Assembly
Finance Commission or the Dean of Students.
