The Excelsior has been an integral part of the news service at Brooklyn College since 1988. We are a student run organization that takes on the responsibilities of a fully functional and organized news publication. The staff at The Excelsior is committed to bringing the students at Brooklyn College, as well as our viewers on the web, unbiased, entertaining, and thorough reports of the who, what, where, when, and why.

As aspiring journalists, editors, creative writers, photographers, critics, and most of all students of the craft, we are thrilled to bring you the Excelsior website, Twitter, and Facebook. We want to connect with YOU! So what are you waiting for?

  1. Hello Excelsior Staff,

    I am interested in writing a guest column, or (if possible) in joining the staff as an opinion writer. What would I need to do?

    Best Wishes,

  2. Can you guys please do a story about why the Brooklyn College swimming pool is closing this spring semester several afternoons a week because they haven’t hired enough life guards to keep it staffed. This is unheard of. They pay minimum wage to life guards and that seems to be one reason of many. Competent management? Another story. Also, in the Fitness Center, about 30% of the cardio machines are “out of order”, seemingly indefinitely. Many of the machines have a sign to indicate that their “out of order”, but others don’t work and there’s no sign posted. As students who are paying recreation fees, we deserve and expect much better than this.
    Thanks very much for looking into this. This level of unprofessionalism impacts the students, staff and the community that relies on the Fitness Center. Very much appreciated.

    How can I advertise my photography services in the student paper? I am currently a BC student. Thank you!
