Daily Orange

re:fuel Media Group would like to congratulate Syracuse University’s The Daily Orange newspaper on its 110th anniversary!

The Daily Orange was one of the first college publications to gain full independence from its parent college. Over the years, the Daily Orange has served as a journalism proving ground; several alumni are reporters or editors at major publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal.

Today, The Daily Orange publishes 9,000 copies Monday – Thursday, reaching 20,000 readers.

Here’s to your continued success. Go Orange!
