Student Media


Students have the opportunity to write for a number of university publications. These include the campus student newspaper, The Voice; the student yearbook, The Obiter; the annual student handbook, The Pilot; BUTV and WBUQ-FM.

The Voice is a student newspaper with a circulation of 4,500. About 40 to 50 students work on the paper each semester. They participate in all management decisions. Students enjoy full editorial control and operate all newspaper departments.

BU's mass communications program operates three television studios for formal course work and provides hands-on experience with modern high definition broadcast equipment. In cooperation with BUTV, students can participate in campus broadcast activities that include student-produced programs, local telethons, charity drives, televised town council meetings and sporting events.

In Focus is a weekly half-hour student-produced news program cablecast live and rebroadcast over local community channels. Students manage all editorial functions, studio production activities and all post-production work.

Students also staff a campus radio station, WBUQ-FM. The station has acquired the minimum local audience necessary for recognition by Nielsen, the country's major radio audience rating service. Students participate in station management, programming and as on-air personalities for student-produced music and talk programs.

BUnow is a student run online news organization that covers the latest news and events in Bloomsburg, in Pennsylvania, and around the world.
