At any school,
even one the size of Davidson College, one or two regular student publications
cannot possibly investigate or cover the wide range of views, beliefs,
and intimate corners of the student body. Libertas, the new magazine
for Davidson, was conceived of by students in response to the recognizable
gap that lies between The Davidsonian and Hobart Park. The
magazine is run by students and owned by students. It is intended to be
a publication that provides another forum for extensive and intelligent
student and faculty discourse as well as another arena in which students
may experiment with writing, photography, business, and graphic design.
Because Libertas will rely heavily on student contribution and involvement, we urge all members of the Davidson community to invest in this venture, to stake a claim on the pages of this magazine with enthusiasm and support. Libertas is published biweekly on Wednesdays by the students of Davidson College, at Mullen Publications in Charlotte, NC, and distributed campus- and community-wide every other Thursday. Letters and submissions of all sorts are welcome. Deadlines are Sunday nights before publication at midnight. Staff meetings are on biweekly Thursdays in the Wilson Room of the College Union at 10:00 p.m.
The editors reserve
the right to edit submissions for grammar and length. Opinions expressed
in this publication do not necessarily reflect the views of the staff.
The copyright is held by Libertas.
