The College Store welcomes press releases and submissions for various departments in each issue, including People, Industry Update, Letters to the Editor, For What It's Worth (guest columns), and For Your Information (new product announcements).

 

Items will be published at the discretion of the editor, and all submissions may be edited for clarity, style, grammar, and length.

 

The College Store also accepts paid advertising and sponsorships.

 

People

This section features promotions, retirements, awards, and other milestone events for people working at NACS member stores and vendor companies. Items should include the person's title, store/institution or company, city, and state, with a head photo attached if possible (color preferred).

 

Industry Update

Industry Update highlights news briefs about NACS member stores and companies as well as nonmember organizations involved in the industry.

 

E-mail People and Industry Update items to Assistant Editor Dan Angelo at cs@nacs.org or mail to The College Store, c/o NACS, 500 E. Lorain St., Oberlin, OH 44074. For information, call (800) 622-7498, ext. 2259.

 

Letters to the Editor

Letters commenting on previous articles or on topics related to the college store industry are welcome. Letters should be submitted by e-mail and must include the writer's name, title, store/institution or company, city, and state.

 

For What It's Worth

This guest column allows NACS members to share their viewpoints on a topic in greater detail than a letter to the editor would permit. Length is generally 600 to 900 words. Columns should be submitted as an e-mail attachment, preferably in Microsoft Word, and should include the writer's name, title, store/institution or company, city, and state.

 

E-mail letters and columns to Editor Michael von Glahn at thecollegestore@nacs.org. For information, call (800) 622-7498, ext. 2304.
