  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

The "Other" Boston College Student Papers

Online edititions of the "other" (non-The Heights) Boston College student papers have been posted; read the conservative Observer here and the liberal Patriot here. They are what they are. I find The Observer to be equally biased, but much more readable because of more investagative journalism and, well, a prettier website.
The two papers butt heads on several recent issues:

The Drug "Bust" (see BC Blog coverage)

The Observer's defense of The Heights' coverage.

The Patriot's attempt at satire.

ALC/GLC Budget Funding

The Observer criticizes the UGBC's increased funding to the ALC and GLC.

The Patriot's defense of the UGBC's increased funding.

(portions of the UGBC budget available from The Observer here).

Other News

There is now a "Boston College Rally Committee."
