Hamilton College Media Board
The Hamilton College Media Board is composed of representatives from all the student publications on campus as well as WHCL-FM. The Media Board aims to serve as the link between students, the student publications, the administration, and the community as a whole.
The Media Board meets every other Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. in the Sadove Center conference room. Media Board meetings are open to the public, but are sometimes closed at the discretion of the Board, often during elections. We welcome feedback, as we are constantly trying to improve the the media outlets on campus.

The Continental magazine strives to provide accurate, intriguing, thought-provoking student interest stories in a more casual journalistic setting. Due to our status as a tri-yearly publication, we focus less on breaking a particular news story and instead on student reactions and opinions after the fact, to gain a sense of the state of campus mentality. We want to hear the voices of Hamilton College. We want to see how students of varied backgrounds express themselves in writing. We want to know what people are creating and what their passions have driven them to accomplish. We seek to publish articles that are critical of an issue, yet respectful and well-intentioned. The magazine should, in the end, allow students to learn about college happenings outside of their own lives and gain a certain appreciation for the originality present in every aspect of Hamilton life. Lastly, due to the magazine's flexible deadlines, The Continental should provide further evidence to the already held belief that Hamilton students possess exceptional skill when it comes to writing.
