JOIN THE STAFF OF BOSTON’S FOURTH-LARGEST DAILY NEWSPAPER.
The Daily Free Press is an invaluable experience for any student looking to build a writing portfolio. Clips from the student newspaper are a must-have on any college journalist’s resume, and at The FreeP you’ll have the opportunity to report on major events in the city and campus, as well as sports and arts & entertainment. Our reporters cover presidential visits and city elections, travel with Terrier sports teams, sit in the TD Garden press box at Bruins games and go backstage at concerts across the city.
Working at The FreeP is a fantastic opportunity to network around the city and in the industry, gaining the experience and making the connections that will launch your career. FreeP writers and editors have gone on to intern and work at the AP, The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, The Boston Globe, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Wall Street Journal, PBS, NBC, The Onion, ESPN.com, Rolling Stone and many more. We’ve won national accolades for college journalism, and our alumni include a Pulitzer Prize winner and the editor of People Magazine.
In the FreeP office, you’ll be exposed to the foundations of traditional journalism as well as the front lines of new media, all in a real world setting. We turn over our staff at the beginning of each semester, so you’ll have plenty of chances to move up or try new things. Participation is on a volunteer basis and is open to all BU students regardless of major or level of experience.
