Do you have an idea for the paper, or would like to share a story with us? 
We would love your input. We are always looking for fresh ideas for our paper. All ideas and content will be considered. Please share with us your ideas or submissions via email to [email protected]

Why does the print edition not come out as often as in the past?
The print edition is costly. The online paper is less expensive and can be updated more frequently. In addition, the online edition adds features such as audio and video that are not possible in a print edition. At the current time all print editions will be for archival purposes only, not for distribution.

Did you know there is a typo or other error on the site? 
We do our best to catch all of our mistakes; however, the Panther Tales is a student produced paper. We are learning and we will make mistakes.
