In a recent case the Fifth Circuit decided that a student editor of a state university campus newspaper could not be compelled to print paid advertisements submitted for publication. The author of this note disputes the court's analysis in determining that the campus newspaper was not a public forum. Upon concluding that a public forum was involved, the author argues that the plaintiffs had a constitutionally protected right of access arising from the first and fourteenth amendments.
