The Heights is the independent student newspaper of Boston College, founded in 1919. Nearing 100 years of continuous publication and printed twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays during the academic year, The Heights serves as an unparalleled record of progress on campus. The Heights is published and copyrighted by The Heights, Inc. and is entirely staffed and produced by BC undergraduates.
The Heights has been financially independent from Boston College since 1971. Donating today will help make sure the paper remains in the hands of its student staff.
