Letters Policy

The Bulletin welcomes letters to the editor addressing topics covered in the magazine. Although criticism of the College and its policies is acceptable, no letters containing potentially libelous statements or personal attacks will be printed.

The editors reserve the final decision to publish and edit any letter—there is no guarantee that all letters received will be published.

All letters must be signed. The maximum length is 300 words. The editors reserve the right to edit letters for clarity and space. Writers may be asked to submit revised versions of letters or to approve editorial changes made by the Bulletin editor. After two issues, the debate on any topic will conclude. Some letters may be disseminated only on the Bulletin website, especially if there are many letters addressing a single topic. Views expressed in this magazine do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the editors or the official views or policies of the College.

Letters may be mailed to Editor, Swarthmore College Bulletin, 500 College Ave., Swarthmore PA 19081-1390 or sent by email to bulletin@swarthmore.edu.
