In college, media plays an integral role in student life. With a yearbook, a TV station, three literary magazines, and an entirely student-run newspaper, there is not lack of opportunity for aspiring media professionals at Mary Baldwin College.
Bluestocking, the MBC yearbook, is for students with creative interests in writing, photography, and graphic design. Student staff works to capture the spirit of each school year.

MEDIA ADVISORY BOARD
The Media Advisory Board at MBC meets monthly during the academic year to guide and advise four of the primary student media outlets on campus: Bluestocking, Campus Comments, MBC Radio, and MBC-TV. The board selects leaders for those organizations, oversees budgets, promotes their mission and use, helps secure funding, and ensures — along with student Senate and faculty and staff — that freedom of the press and speech are upheld consistent with law. Members include advisors and student leaders involved in each of the organizations, as well as non-media faculty members and a member of the office of Communication, Marketing, and Public Affairs.
