Why YOU should apply to write for BlogDH

Do you find yourself wanting to join a club every semester and then letting shopping period anxiety get in your way? We get it. But we’re also here to convince you that now is the time to send in those applications! And while we’ve got you reading, we’re going to give you our best pitch for why you should join Blog.

We are Brown student’s go-to source for campus news and happenings.

If you’ve ever wanted to be that person to break campus-wide news, then Blog is your jam. Join a team of highly motivated journalists who are committed to keeping College Hill in the loop. We spotlight students who do incredibly cool and powerful things, we keep students in the know about University news and summarize campus-wide emails, we report the Spring Weekend lineup announcement,  break College-Hill-relevant news, and give you day-to-day insight on whether you should go to the Ratty or the V-Dub. We even take down Jesse Watters so you don’t have to. Bill O’Reilly also gave us a special shout-out for this drinking game. Basically, we’re your Meiklejohn, your best friend, your professor, your guardian, and your stress-relieving golden retriever all combined in one.

We’re always looking to improve and grow so that we can give College Hill innovative, interactive, and exciting content.

We are passionate about providing an engaging media platform that covers what the College Hill community wants to read, watch, and hear. From our research on what it means to be Happy@Brown, to our forays into Drunk/Sober/High territory, we are constantly trying to push the envelope and develop cutting-edge content to keep up with your pace. In order to always be here when people need us, we need you to keep our momentum going and to take Blog to new heights!
