Letter Policy

The opinion pages of The Student are intended as an open forum for the Amherst community. The Student will consider letters under 400 words in length if they are submitted to The Student offices in the Campus Center or to the paper's email account (astudent@amherst.edu) by noon on Sunday.

The editors reserve the right to edit any letters exceeding the 400-word limit or to withhold any letter because of considerations of space or content. Letters must bear the names of all contributors and a phone number where the author or authors may be reached. Letters and columns may be edited for clarity and Student style. The Student will not print personal or group defamation.
