A newspaper by and for students at Bergen Community College

The Torch is Bergen Community College’s student newspaper, covering news, sports, entertainment, and issues of relevance to BCC and our community.

The Torch, evolving from The Bergen Monitor, was launched in 1995 by a group of dedicated, inquisitive students. Now in its fourth decade of publication, The Torch remains committed to the highest standards of journalistic integrity.
