Faculty advisers reject student’s submission

CALIFORNIA — When Fresno City College student Ryan Bowler had hissubmission to the campus magazine The Ram’s Tale rejected by facultyadvisers out of fear it would offend the school’s administration, he decidedto use another publication to get the word out about what he calls an attemptto “regulate the student press and subsequently control the student body.”

In a commentary published by The Fresno Bee in May, Bowler accusedschool officials of threatening to withhold monetary support from TheRam’s Tale if student editors printed material that offended administrators.
