Campus Navigator

Want to target about 8,000 new customers?

Deadline: May 3, 2019
Publication: May 17, 2019

The University of Illinois will admit about 8,000 freshmen for Fall 2019, and all freshmen are required to attend a one-day orientation to register for classes and tour campus. Our street team distributes Campus Navigator at new student orientation throughout the summer.

These new students have yet to figure out the best places to eat, shop, bank, find necessities or have fun. The Daily Illini’s Campus Navigator will give students and parents a first look at the best that the campus community has to offer, providing you the opportunity to target both demographics.
