The Rider News serves as a public forum for student expression and welcomes letters to the editor from all members of the university community. Letters must include the writer’s telephone number and email address for verification of authorship. Letters that constitute personal attacks on individuals or groups are unacceptable, and letters must be appropriate in terms of taste and civility. We reserve the right to edit letters for length, clarity, accuracy, grammar and libel. Brevity is encouraged. All decisions are at the sole discretion of the editorial board, which may reject or postpone any letter. Send to The Rider News via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), campus mail, or hand deliver to Ridge House. Letters must be received by noon on the Monday preceding publication, but because of space limitations, earlier is better.
