Letters Policy

The Bulletin welcomes letters to the editor addressing topics covered in the magazine or issues relating to the College. There is no guarantee that all letters received will be published. Some letters may be published on only the Bulletin Web site, especially if there are numerous letters addressing a single topic. The suggested maximum length for letters is 300 words, and letters may be edited for clarity and space. All letters must be signed. The Bulletin will publish letters responding to an article or issue and, in one subsequent edition, letters responding to those letters. After two issues, however, the editors may choose to end the debate on any topic. Letters from the same person will not be published more often than once every two years. Letters may be mailed to Editor, Swarthmore College Bulletin, 500 College Avenue, Swarthmore PA 19081-1390 or sent by e-mail to
