About The Sun

The style, size and layout of The Cornell Daily Sun’s issues have changed drastically over the course of its 144 years of independent reporting. (Isabelle Jung/Sun Graphics Editor)

Founded in 1880, The Sun is the oldest continuously independent college daily in the United States.

The Sun publishes a print edition on Tuesday and Thursday during the academic year and is free on newsstands and online. The Sun is staffed entirely by Cornell students, aside from a few full-time production and business positions, and operates out of an office building in downtown Ithaca.
