Discussion is one of the most potent tools for social change. This is a fact. And on Penn’s campus, filled with advocates of all stripes, the changes demanded take on many shapes and forms.

But for nearly 150 years, The Daily Pennsylvanian’s Opinion pages have served as the premiere place for campus discussion. It is a place for you to formally express your thoughts and have them shared in print and online for thousands of members of the Penn community to read.

If you want to weigh in on important campus issues, consider submitting a guest piece to be published here.

The general process is simple: send us your piece, we’ll consider it, edit it in the same way we do all other opinion content, and then publish it. Guest columns should be between 650 and 800 words, letters to the editor are about 250.
