About Free Press

We are Bard College’s only student newspaper. We print once a month during the academic year, and our coverage includes – but is not limited to – community news, feature writing, campus culture & activities, art reviews, opinions & editorials, sports updates, and news from Bard’s satellites around the world. We include student photography and artwork, and are completely student-run. We hold open office hours every Tuesday 7:30 – 8:30 pm in our office, which is located in the basement of Tewksbury.
