Hiltonian: the Student Newspaper 

Hiltonian_StaffThe Hiltonian, the official student newspaper of Reinhardt University, is edited, managed, and written by Reinhardt University students. The Hiltonian provides coverage of Reinhardt events, as well as serving as a campus forum.

A college newspaper is more than a source of news. It is a forum for public debate; it is the voice of the students amplified to an audible pitch; it is anything and everything students try to make it. All students are encouraged to show their interest and support.

All ad and article deadlines are the 15th of the month for the issue that is printed and delivered on the 1st of the following month.

Hiltonian Policies

The policy of the Hiltonian is to provide our students with professionally supported training in newspaper-related areas and to produce a high quality product people want to read. We offer students hands-on training using state-of-the-art technology as they prepare for careers in the media.

The emphasis is on STUDENTS at Reinhardt University. Reinhardt University does not believe in censorship of any kind. We respect and encourage our students to exercise their guaranteed rights of free speech. Our students determine content, programming and handle all matters relating to personnel. This privilege is quickly tempered by the responsibility that goes along with work in a public forum. Students rely on advisers, but advisers do not preview student work. Instead, teaching and constructive criticism come after publications and broadcasts.

Letters to the Editor

Letters to the Editor should be addressed to the Hiltonian Staff. The Hiltonian will try to print all letters received. Letters should be, at maximum, 250 - 300 words long and should pertain to an issue that concerns the Reinhardt University community.

The writer must include:

  • Full name
  • Professional title if a Reinhardt University employee or year and major if a student
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • All letters must be signed (though requests for anonymous publication may be considered by the editors).

The Hiltonian reserves the right to edit all submissions for style, possible libel, or in case of space limitations. The newspaper will not withhold names under any circumstance. The opinions of the Letters to the Editor are not necessarily the opinions of the Hiltonian Staff or Reinhardt University. Please address all correspondence to: Letter to the Editor

Articles

Final decisions concerning printing and/or editing of any submission (by the Hiltonian Staff or members of the Reinhardt University Community) belongs to the Editorial Board of the Hiltonian. The Hiltonian reserves the right to edit all submissions for style, possible libel, or in case of space limitations.

Editorials

Editorials reflect the opinion of Hiltonian, but not necessarily of each member of the Hiltonian Staff or Reinhardt University. Any opinion columns or cartoons reflect the opinions of the writers or artists, and not necessarily the opinions of the Hiltonian Staff or Reinhardt University.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Hiltonian is to inform the students of events occurring on campus and to provide students an opportunity to express their opinions on pertinent issues.
