Do you like to read? Write? Take photos? Sell ads? On The Heights, Boston College’s only independent student newspaper, you can do all of those things. Join FLIP: the Freshman Leadership Initiative Program. FLIP is an immersive, semester-long opportunity for freshmen that will give you a chance to explore several roles in the newsroom, from reporting and photography to digital content and ad sales. You will be paired with a current Heights board member who will serve as your mentor, helping you figure out your future with The Heights. They’ll teach you some of the basics, and guide you through your first semester at Boston College.

About The Heights…
The Heights is student-run and is financially and editorially independent from the University. Students report, edit, take photos, design pages, sell ads, and market the paper, which is printed twice-weekly. Want daily updates? Follow us on Facebook or Twitter and check out bcheights.com.
Meetings for FLIP will be every Sunday for the remainder of first semester. They are led by Sarah Moore, the Outreach Coordinator. She will teach you the basics of journalism and help take your existing skills to the next level. No prior experience in journalism is necessary to apply.
