This guide's purpose is to encourage consistency in the College's official Web-based and print communications. It is not intended to suggest how members of the Gordon community should go about scholarly or creative writing.
If you have a question it does not address, from a computer on the Gordon College network you can consult the online Chicago Manual of Style, the style guide used by the Office of College Communications. It spells out preferred style for an extraordinary range of writing issues. (Access from computers elsewhere requires some extra steps; email us for instructions.)
Now that our style guide is online, we can update it easily to add new institutional terminology and reflect changes in usage. Your suggestions are welcome.
