The Communications Office uses the Associated Press (AP) Stylebook as its primary style reference for College publications, both print and electronic. As a result, this guide is not intended to be comprehensive; it addresses some of the more troublesome areas, as well as instances where Hamilton College style supersedes AP style.
Please note that style for academic writing may differ from this guide. Students preparing papers for classes should consult Essentials of Writing: The Hamilton College Style Sheet.
