First appearing on campus in February 1926, The Triangle is the newspaper-of-record at Drexel University. The paper is published every Friday during the fall, winter, and spring terms, and every other Friday during the summer term. Being both financially and editorially independent of the University, all decisions regarding content as well as the paper’s growth are made by the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Board.
The Triangle covers campus and Philadelphia news, sports and entertainment as it affects the Drexel community. Each issue also contains commentaries, classifieds, puzzles and comics.
The Triangle has had a website in one form or another since the mid 90s. Originally hosted on a staff member’s personal computer, thetriangle.org is now hosted by Media Temple and proudly powered by WordPress.
Special Edition Issues
Throughout the year we produce many special edition issues. These issues usually have increased circulation and are a great opportunity for advertisers to reach more of the Drexel community than a regular issue. Some of the issues include:
Welcome Back – Published each year the week before classes start, to catch up returning students on what has happened on campus in their absence, and to welcome new students to the Drexel community.
Basketball Preview – A special edition about a week before college basketball season begins. It provides season predictions, player and coach interviews, and a breakdown of the entire conference, among other things.
Orange Brick – A special section of the paper published towards the end of the Spring term. It recognizes those people and organizations that we covered throughout the year that deserve extra credit for being such an great news story.
The Rectangle – A full broadsheet issue that is released for April Fool’s Day. It features joke articles, reviews and commentaries to coincide with the holiday. Due to the joking nature of the issue, we do not allow ads to run in this issue.
