Paul SmithApollos Smith was known for the great stories he told, and the great stories he gathered around him. And now, at the college founded in his and Lydia’s memory, The Apollos is where we gather our stories, tell our news, share our art, and express our ideas.

The Apollos is the views of our community: we are a submissions-based platform for communication and self-expression. The Apollos honors authenticity of voice, diversity of perspective, and integrity and fairness.

The pieces gathered here represent the opinion of the various authors, not Paul Smith’s College as a whole, and the accuracy of information presented is the responsibility of the author.
