The Opinions team is responsible for presenting well-argued and well-researched opinions articles that are informative, thought provoking, interesting, and/or entertaining. The Opinions section focuses largely on university, local, and student life issues, but national and international issues in politics, economics, the environment, are often covered as well.
If you would like to reach out to the Trail Opinions team, with ideas, compliments or suggestions, the section editor can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
