Student newspaper to launch a second edition

The Heights, Boston College's student-run newspaper, will begin publishing twice a week, in October. The paper, which has been a weekly since 1919, will appear on Mondays and Thursdays, with Thursday's edition including
a magazine insert from Sports Illustrated.

The Monday edition will remain similar to the current weekly, though at a size reduced from 36 to 28 pages. The Thursday edition will average 20 pages and will include news, sports, an opinion page, and an arts and reviews department.

The paper is produced by 150 undergraduate staff members and contributors. Editor-in-chief Ryan Heffernan '06 notes that the need for more stories to fill the paper's additional pages will give less-senior contributors the opportunity to work on more demanding projects than had been available to them under the present schedule.

Thursday's insert, Sports Illustrated on Campus, was launched last year and is distributed through student newspapers at 70 participating colleges. The magazine previews the upcoming weekend in college athletics.

Last March, the Heights's website, www.bcheights.com, was recognized as the most trafficked college-weekly site on the College Publisher network, ahead of websites representing newspapers at 100 other institutions. In early 2001, the Heights was one of the first journals to join the network, which serves 250 student papers across the country.
