Student publications at Bossier Parish Community College serve a valuable and necessary function. One of the primary reasons for their existence rests in the educational value for editors, staff, and the student body at large. Publications should be used as tools for the establishment and maintenance of free, responsible discussion and intellectual exploration. As vehicles for free expression in an academic community, student publications must be guaranteed sufficient editorial freedom.
At the same time, since the entire academic community is represented in part by student publications, the editors of such publications must recognize their commitment to responsible journalism in the avoidance of libel, indecency, undocumented allegations or personal attacks, and in fair representation of the student body and the College. In an attempt to ensure responsible journalism, all copy must be previewed by the advisor prior to publication.
All students scheduling JRNL 101, JRNL 102, JRNL 211, or JRNL 212 must have taken or be currently enrolled in ENGL 101 and TLCM 211 Newswriting or TLCM 209 Scriptwriting. Students work under the direction of a faculty advisor. Scholarships are available for full time students.
