The letters to the editor section of the S&B provides an open forum for students to share their opinions about issues concerning the student body. Writing a letter to the editor is a great way to challenge the ideas of the S&B, our peers and administrators, as well as to show support for the things that we already love about Grinnell College.
Though we know it gets a little old hearing that you should “be the change you want to see” in Grinnell, if you are looking for a new and relatively simple way to get involved in the Grinnell community, writing a letter to the editor is a productive way to do so.
Last week, the S&B received a letter to the editor concerning a controversial publication recently distributed to students. This letter has since spawned an open debate about free expression and misogynous language on campus.
This kind of debate is perfect for a letter to the editor, and we hope that it inspires future discussion. So rather than complaining to your friends about current issues involving the state of the College, why not form a coherent argument and share your opinions with everyone.
