Because the UNI-Dome is located on a college campus, the ability to spread information through word-of-mouth to 13,000 students, 2,500 faculty, and countless administrative assistants, is the key to success for all UNI-Dome events.
The Cedar Valley carries three main television stations and a local Cedar Falls channel. KWWL is located in Waterloo, whereas the other two main stations are located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (approximately 45 minutes south of Cedar Falls). All carriers will cover events upon request and advertisements can be placed as necessary.
Numerous radio station's signals can be obtained in the Cedar Falls area. KUNI, along with three radio subsets are broadcasted on-campus at UNI and KBBG is broadcasted in Waterloo. Approximately seventy-five other stations are located within the target range for UNI-Dome events.
The campus student newspaper, the Northern Iowan, is published twice a week and covers all events in the UNI-Dome. The Waterloo/Cedar Falls Courier, distributed daily throughout the Cedar Valley, also prints articles pertaining to events held in the UNI-Dome. Placing advertisements in these two publications, as well as many others, is also available.
The UNI-Dome website (www.uni.edu/unidome), as well as, the UNI Homepage (www.uni.edu) advertises all special events held in the UNI-Dome. Pictures from each event are posted following the show to assist in event awareness in the future.
