The Paisano

Media Kit


The Paisano is a non-profit Educational Trust and a self-supported, student-run weekly newspaper. The Trust was established in 1981 as a Section 501 (c) (3) non-profit. In 40 years of publication, the Paisano has won numerous awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The Paisano is completely staffed by UTSA student volunteers. This all-volunteer student newspaper is a limited public forum whose content is dictated solely by the student editors; because the Paisano is an independent newspaper, it does not receive support from UTSA or proceeds from student fees or taxes, and students do not earn course credit. Revenues from the advertising pay for the newspaper’s publishing and operating costs.


The average undergraduate student is 22 years old, and the average graduate student is 32 years old. The Paisano publishes 4,800 copies every Tuesday, except holidays and exam periods, with a weekly circulation of over 30,000 students.
