NEWSWEEK ON CAMPUS: Standing on Our Own

n a somewhat unusual way,
NEWSWEEK ON CAMPUS
touches another milestone
with this first issue of 1988.
Those of you who are subscrib-
ers to NEWSWEEK itself have
always received NEWSWEEK
ON CAMPUS bound inside the
parent magazine. You are re-
ceiving this issue, and will re-
ceive future issues, in a sepa-
rate mailing. Why? Because
we have grown enough that we
cannot be considered a supple-
ment but rather have become
an identifiable magazine capa-

ble of standing on its own.
We are still part of NEWS-
WEEK, thankfully, because this
gives us the additional re-
sources that make it possible
for us to cover timely issues of
special interest and impor-
tance to college students in a
way no other magazine has
ever been able to. Our total cir-
culation, by the way, is still
climbing. It is 1.3 million,
and for those who are not
NEWSWEEK subscribers, we are
distributed on a growing num-
ber of campuses, large and

small, nationwide-200 by
now, and increasing. Media-re-
search organizations estimate
our total readership at 3.3
million.
The message of NEWSWEEK
ON CAMPUS has always been
that we take our readers seri-
ously. We think that our cover
story this month-a discussion
of some of the great issues
facing higher education and
college students today-par-
ticularly demonstrates this
magazine's relationship with
its readers.
