Over the Edge (OTE) is UNBC’s free press newspaper that connects with students, faculty, and staff in many different varieties. Twice a month we publish content that is aimed to connect students and reflect what is unique about UNBC student life. As a small university in northern British Columbia, students here share a colourful experience, and Over the Edge is the forum where those student voices and experiences can be expressed and challenged.
OTE is a student newspaper that is run by and for students. All students are welcome to become involved with OTE – help is always needed and no experience is expected! Working at OTE provides students the opportunity to develop written and verbal communications skills, as well as computer and technical skills that are needed to produce a quality paper. Working along side other determined and interesting individuals has its obvious benefits as well – we teach each other fascinating things, help each other create memorable work, and support each other through the university experience. In other words, Over the Edge is a great place to meet new people, learn new skills, and get involved with campus activities.
OTE originated in 1994 under the Northern Undergraduate Student Society (NUGSS), where it ran for 10 years. Since October 2004, however, OTE has operated as an independent organization. As a young student publication in a young university, OTE has been able to involve UNBC students in chronicling the growth of their own university and the development of their campus culture. We hope this is something you can be a part of too!
