Online Display Advertising
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.
In addition to advertising with our print edition, The Cornell Daily Sun Online Edition offers a wide range of advertising opportunities in both display and classifieds. Currently, The Sun online offers three size options for advertising space: 125 by 125 pixel boxes, 125 by 600 pixel skyscrapers and a 468 by 60 pixel banner that lines the bottom of the web page. Advertisers have the opportunity to purchase ad space for 25% of daily impressions for a period of one month. Additionally, advertisers may purchase more than one fourth, increasing the rate of appearance from 25% to 50%, 75% or 100% of daily impressions.
