BC Social Fellows

Each year, BC invites a small group of students to share the Boston College experience with a global audience through social media. The Social Fellows are a talented group of photographers, videographers, and curators who document the sights and sounds across campus, throughout the city, and around the world, from the extraordinary to the everyday.

This internship opportunity is available to Boston College undergraduates from all schools. Students who can demonstrate a talent for creating outstanding digital content and an interest in learning more about social media are invited to apply through the Office of University Communications.
