The Spectator: Hamilton’s Student-run Newspaper


My name is Charles Dunst, I’m a member of the Class of 2018. I’m the current editor and chief of The Spectator. The Spectator is actually older than The New
York Times, we’ve been published every year since 1847. The Spectator has actually covered everything
on Hamilton’s campus from speakers to news events. We get to cover people who are congressmen
or experts in their field; speakers from Russia or Syria who come here every day to talk about
issues that are important to them. Our news section aims to kind of really inform
students about what is going on behind the scenes. We’ve gotten a lot of applications from freshmen;
we hire everyone. You are forced to confront things that will
make you uncomfortable, forced to confront issues and viewpoints that will make you uncomfortable or even styles
of writing that make you uncomfortable from students and opposition views from faculty alike. The idea is to represent the campus as a whole. The bottom line is that’s my job, to represent
the entire campus and make sure our newspaper stands for everyone, doesn’t just stand for a certain
person or a certain person’s type of view.
