The Friedman Sprout

Student Organizations

The Friedman Sprout is a monthly student-run newspaper that aims to serve the student population at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, prospective students, and alumni. The goal of the Sprout is to act as an educational tool for the students who choose to write for the paper or to read the paper. We accept writing on a wide range of topics pertinent to the various aspects of nutrition, health, and overall well-being. We accept submissions from all students; whether writing talents lie in news articles, research articles, or opinion pieces. We want to encourage students to develop research and writing skills through their contributions and editing of the newspaper.

A secondary goal of the Friedman Sprout is to be a method of communication to link alumni, first year students, second year students, and prospective students, as well as between each of the five concentrations at the Friedman School. The newspaper has regular, monthly columns highlighting alumni achievements, policy updates, nutrition research, and campus-wide events, which should appeal to all students regardless of program or year as well as alumni and prospective students.
