  • Build relationships with the community by providing accurate information through student journalism which is proactive, thoughtful, and articulate.
  • Connect with audiences through web, visuals, audio and social media.
  • Manage a structured yet approachable sounding board for Bridgewater College students.
  • Provide real world professional experience and skills to all students working with BCVoice.

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.

A class that is cross-listed in both Communication Studies and Professional Writing, the news practicum prepares students for the convergence of media, providing practical experience in multi-platform media writing and production including web, video and audio (podcasts and radio) as well as design, photography and social media.

The class is offered both fall and spring semesters for one credit; it may be repeated for a total of three credit hours to earn the experiential (X) general education requirement. It meets on Mondays at 5 p.m.

Students do not need to be registered in COMM or PWR 131 to be part of BC Voice. Whether as a staff writer or a guest contributor, all majors and years welcome.
