A note on commentary

In light of the growing attention around the recently published commentary piece “If academic programs are under review, put athletic programs under review, too,” the Free Press would like to make clear the purpose of our Commentary section.

This article was published under the Commentary section of the Free Press. The opinions expressed in this section do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Free Press or McDaniel College and are solely representative of their respective authors.

We believe in opening our Commentary section to writers expressing all opinions, which, while sometimes controversial among members of the campus community, allows us to properly and fairly represent the opinions of the student body. We hope our readers understand each individual’s right to expressing their opinion through our campus media outlet.

This being said, the Free Press encourages all readers to submit a letter to the editor or a commentary piece should they wish to share their opinions on any of our published material.

If any readers have questions about Free Press commentary, please contact our staff.
