News in the Next Century

The Heights is proud to announce the beginning of our centennial celebration: News in the Next Century. As we approach 100 years of news, 100 years of dedicated editors, and 100 years of tradition in 2019, we invite you to join us in commemorating our history and ensuring a successful future. For 98 years, we have been responsible for keeping the University’s record, writing and sharing the moments and traditions that have defined our Boston College experiences.

As our editorial side expands into new ventures, mentioned in our announcement on A1, our business operations must evolve as well. We are using this historical benchmark to ensure that The Heights has the financial stability to continue to exist and grow for centuries to come. We must also look to support the changes that a 21st-century multi-platform news outlet will demand. With a fundraising goal of $50,000, we are depending on you, our readers and alumni, for support.

Since its conception in 1919, The Heights has been an integral part of the University, students’ day-to-day lives, and most especially to us, the lives of the writers and editors that create it. This centennial anniversary celebrates every Heights editor and staff member that has contributed to our legacy over the last 100 years. We will spend the next two and a half years remembering every meaningful moment in our history, every time-honored tradition, and every late night/early morning spent in McElroy 113. We invite you to join us in celebrating 100 years of The Heights.
