The Emory Wheel was founded in 1919 and is currently the only student-run newspaper of Emory University. The Wheel publishes twice weekly (Tuesday and Friday) during the academic year, except during University holidays and scheduled publication intermissions.
The Wheel is financially and editorially independent from the University. All of its content is generated by the Wheel‘s more than 100 student staff members and contributing writers, and its printing costs are covered by profits from self-generated advertising sales.
The Wheel holds an enduring charter from the Student Government Association.
A single copy of the Wheel is free of charge. To purchase additional copies, please contact the Business and Advertising Office. Copies of the paper are delivered throughout the campus.
The Wheel reserves the rights to all content as it appears in these pages, and permission to reproduce material must be granted by the Editor in Chief.
The Editor-in-Chief is chosen in February through a general election of the newspaper’s staff. An Editor in Chief’s term lasts from the first issue after spring break to the last issue before spring break. Please contact the Wheel if you have further questions about the Wheel, its election process or its constitution.
Editorial and Op-Ed Submissions
The Emory Wheel welcomes all members of the Emory community to submit op-eds. All op-eds should be submitted to the Editorials editor for consideration.
Submissions reflect the opinions of individual writers and not of the Wheel editorial board or Emory University. Op-eds may be written on a subject of the author’s choice but must be grounded in fact. Please limit op-eds to 1000 words.
You may submit letters or op-eds to Editorials Editor Erik Alexander.
Letters may be written to the Wheel as responses to specific articles or op-eds and should be limited to 300 words. These letters should be addressed to the community and not any one person. Submissions that are written anonymously or are previously published letters will not be accepted.
The Wheel reserves the right to decide which submissions to publish. All submissions become property of the Wheel and are subject to editing for grammar, punctuation, libelous content and length. Once published, op-eds will not be removed. Editing will be performed in accordance with Associated Press and The Emory Wheel style guidelines. All submissions must contain the author’s name, hometown and University affiliation.
The Wheel does not remove content that has already been published, except in extreme circumstances decided by the executive board.
