Campus Advertisers The Spectrum: What We’re All About Since 1950, The Spectrum has been

circulating the campus of the University at Buffalo (UB) three times a week. Students have come to love the SUNY system’s largest student-run newspaper and look forward to reading its coverage every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Not only does The Spectrum provide undergraduate and graduate students alike a reliable news source, but it also gives over 100 students the opportunity to gain real journalism experience. As national print media continues to grow outdated, print media on college campuses continues to thrive. Advertising with The Spectrum gives you a guaranteed readership three days a week at an affordable rate.

By the Numbers 3 issues per week 7,000 copies per issue 80 issues per year 12 pages on average

Distribution: A Far-Reaching Publication The Spectrum prints 7,000 copies every issue, with each copy changing hands 2-3 times. Just about 20,000 undergraduate students attend UB, most of which attend classes on two of our three campuses. Along with delivering on our North and South campuses, The Spectrum also delivers locally to over 25 businesses spanning the city of Buffalo. Furthermore, The Spectrum staff members do paper pass outs three days a week across North Campus in high volume areas such as the Student Union and our largest library.

28,000+ students About 1,000 faculty 2-3 readers per copy 175+ distribution sites (on and off campus)
