ABOUT TRANSCRIPT READERSHIP

The Transcript readership comprises approximately
1,800 students and 300 faculty and staff. By ad-
vertising in The Transcript, you can be assured that
your message will reach a specific target market and
have an impact on your business. Our affordable
rates and discount programs are a great way for you
to tap into these potential customers.

OWU students patronize many businesses in down-
town Delaware and the surrounding area during the
academic year. New and transferring students may
be unaware of the local area, while returning stu-
dents may need a reminder. In addition, parents and
family are also potential customers for local busi-
ness.

We feel the return from your investment in advertis-
ing in our newspaper represents an economical way
for you to reach the OWU community.
