Tip of the Day: Write Op-Eds for the Campus Paper

Given the work that SFL is doing with economic intervention and our recent ad co-sponsored with Cato on Campus, it seems like a good time to explain why it's valuable to write op-eds for your campus paper. Most campus papers are not liberty friendly. The slant of stories, the topics chosen, and their outright endorsements are rarely in support of liberty. The easiest way to get your opinions in the paper is to write op-eds and letters to the editor to get published. Not only does this get your ideas in there, but your bio can also highlight your organization. Take the hot topic of the day, or respond to another article in the paper. If you can, have a member of your group get a weekly op-ed spot to guarantee their ideas are presented.
