A Night in the Life of Vivian Ho, Daily Free Press extraordinaire

The Daily Free Press, Boston University’s independent student newspaper, is a completely different world than the typical college undergraduate student experiences.

Co-News Editor Vivian Ho generally spends 50 to 70 hours a week at 648 Beacon St., she said. A “day” in Vivian’s FreeP life begins at 4 p.m., and on a good day ends at 3:30 a.m., on a regular day later than 4:30 a.m.

However grueling it sounds, the rewards outweigh the costs, she said, and the hijinks and friendships the paper has fostered make it worthwhile to keep coming back every day.

(full disclosure: I am Vivian's fellow Co-News Editor!)
