The Yale Record is America’s oldest humor magazine, and we have a very long Wikipedia article to prove it. In addition to publishing a magazine, the Record pulls pranks, makes videos, and uploads various things to this website. Our satire has been featured in Time, BBC News, Quartz, The Hill, and The Huffington Post.

The Record runs The Cucumber, Yale’s only non-audition stand-up comedy show. Email us if you’d like to perform!

Also, we invented the word “hot dog” some time in the 1890s.

Chair: Natasha Weiss ’25

The Record’s past advertisers include local restaurants, alcohol distributors, national chains, banks, bookstores, salons, software companies, furniture stores, and even Amtrak.

Why Advertise?

We offer the cheapest advertising of any student publication at Yale. If you get a better rate from someone else, tell us, and we’ll go even lower.

We print 450 issues of our magazine 8 times per year, plus one “special issue” that typically prints thousands of copies. We are the most popular magazine at Yale; every issue we distribute gets read, often by more than one person. We take special care to distribute in libraries and common rooms — wherever students gather.

We also run special events (pranks, flash mobs, and more) several times per year, capturing the attention of thousands of students; if you’d like to sponsor an event, we can make that happen.

Sound good? Contact our Publisher to set up a call or ask for a price quote.
