The Forum

Hillsdale College


The Hillsdale Forum is an independent, student-run conservative magazine at Hillsdale College. The Forum, in support of the mission statement of the college, exists to foster a campus environment open to true liberal education and human flourishing. We publish opinions, interviews, papers, and campus news. The Forum is a vehicle to bring the discussion and thought of the students and professors at the heart of our school beyond the classroom, because “if a practical end must be assigned to a University course, it is that of training good members of society”. The Forum brings the learning of the classroom into the political reality of campus.


The Hillsdale Forum publishes two or three issues per semester, and we strive for excellent writing, editing, and designing. We are always looking for thoughtful essays on politics, art, culture, and campus news, and are delighted to discover new writers and editors within our community.
