Contribute to the Spartan Review! We particularly need reporting on events on and off campus and content like man-on-the-street interviews, polls, and comics. We accept contributions of any length and nearly any genre or subject. You can contribute to one issue or all issues. If interested, email Charlotte Luke at cluke20@acad.
