Top 15 College Newspapers for Reaching Black Students

By collegemktgrp | January 27, 2010 | Universities

College Marketing Group is a leader in college marketing and campus newspaper advertising. Many moons ago, we actually got our start placing ads in college newspapers for today’s top brands. Over the years, marketing trends have come and gone. College newspapers remain a vital part of most college marketing campaigns we see. Brands that get it right invest in college newspaper ads that run during the entire semester rather than placing one ad and hoping for the best. This brand building creates awareness and trust among today’s skeptical college crowd who are marketed to all the time. More than 1,800 college newspapers can be publishing in any given year. Breaking this down into a manageable list of schools that are right for your company can take time and be a bit overwhelming. We are here to help you navigate through these newspapers and highlight the top college newspapers in different categories.

Today, we have listed the Top 15 HBCU college newspapers in the U.S. If you are interested in reaching campuses with a high enrollment of African American college students, this campus newspaper list offers a potential reach of more than 120,000 black students.
