About

Founded in 1889, The Buchtelite is a student operating business that currently publishes on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters. Issues are delivered to various locations on campus, including Simmons Hall, Olin Hall, the Polsky Building, and the Student Union. The student newspaper receives no money from The University of Akron, relying on advertising sales to support its operations. The University provides rent-free office space in the Student Union on the lower level – Room 51. This newspaper has been revamped with new and updated services, including software, emails, online advertising and website! We have maximized our student staff and are ready to produce a semester full of wonderful issues. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office at 330-972-7919.

The Buchtelite cherishes its editorial independence and strives to be accurate and fair in its reporting and advertising. Should we fall short of that goal, we will correct our mistakes. Please bring errors to the attention of the Editor-in-Chief at 330-972-6184 or the Business Manager at 330-972-5912. Thank you for supporting The Buchtelite and Go Zips!!
