Dexter, an independent student newspaper at Hamilton College, received praise from Peter Wood, President of the National Association Scholars, in Sunday Blog of the NAS website. Professor Wood spoke at Hamilton College Friday, 27 February, on the meaning of academic freedom. He returned from the campus with various publications in hand and contrasted the seriousness of Dexter’s reporting with the vulgarity, feeble “exhibitionism,” and blandness of the official campus newspaper.
Dexter has received praise from the AHI for its attempts to hold students, faculty, administrators, and trustees accountable for their actions and policies. We congratulate editors Liz Farrington and Tim Minella on receiving this recognition and look forward to their next issue.
