Voice Your Opinion


The Beacon welcomes a free and *respectful exchange of ideas and encourages all in the UP community and its alumni to submit written commentary.

Letters to the Editor generally do not exceed 250 words. Those with longer opinions are encouraged to submit guest columns.  Recommended length for guest columns is approximately 500-800 words. 

The Beacon reserves the right to edit any contributions for errors of fact, punctuation, spelling, grammar, length or style, and may reject submissions for any reason without notification. Editors will contact the writer before publication if significant revisions are needed.

Please submit your letter or opinion piece via the form below.

The Beacon’s receipt of a submission does not guarantee publication.

All contributions must include the writer’s address, email address and phone number for verification purposes. University students must include their major and year in school.

The Beacon does not accept submissions from a group unless the writer(s) are listed individually.

Pieces meant solely to publicize campus events without a broader purpose are not appropriate for the Opinions section and should be submitted as story ideas instead.

*Bottom line: Keep it classy and respectful. This is our digital living room. No profanity, inflammatory name-calling  or cheap shots.
