About the Phoenix
The Phoenix is published weekly every Thursday morning during the academic year, except during vacation periods and exams. The Phoenix usually prints 24 tabloid pages—some in color and others in black and white—with sections including news, sports, living & arts and opinions. The newspaper is provided free of charge to the college’s nearly 1500 students. The college’s faculty and staff also receive the newspaper free, while parents, alumni and residents of the Borough of Swarthmore pay for copies, bringing total circulation to 1900 copies.
The Phoenix’s readers are an excellent market for your advertising needs: Swarthmore, a liberal arts college in suburban Philadelphia, has been recognized for years as one of the top institutions of its type in the country (U.S. News & World Report). Its students, representing most of the fifty states and 35 foreign countries, are socially concerned, highly educated and unusually motivated, preparing for challenging careers with high earning potential. Because The Phoenix’s high standards for student journalism have brought it intercollegiate recognition (Associated College Press) and—far more important—intelligent and engaged readers on campus, advertising in our newspaper makes it easy to reach a desirable audience.
