History

BCVoice brings together the print paper, which was last known as Veritas, and Spark Radio, formerly WGMB, under one name.

Student-led media organizations are not new to campus. The Philomathean Monthly, published by the literary societies at the College, contained articles, news and features..  The first issue was published in 1896.

The first student newspaper, The B. C. Bee, published biweekly beginning in Nov. 1925. The radio station was launched as WVBC in 1956.

The B.C. Bee was renamed The Talon and then became Veritas. There are only a limited number of papers in pdf form for Veritas; those can be found by selecting the Print Archive under the About menu tab. Physical archived copies of nearly all student newspapers are available through Bridgewater College Special Collections.

BCVoice was launched as an online platform, with stories published twice a week, in Fall 2019.
