The Flipside is a publication dedicated to providing an alternative media outlet and forum on the UW-Eau Claire campus by welcoming the writings, views, artwork, and involvement of all students and community members.

All published material remains the property of the individual contributors. Opinions of the writers and contributors are their own. Articles found within in no way reflect the opinion of The Flipside as a whole. The Flipside reserves the right to reject any advertising, articles, letters, images, hubcaps, or other material submitted for publication.


The Flipside is published every two weeks on Wednesday during the fall and spring semesters of the academic school year at UW-Eau Claire. Our circulation is between 800 and 1500 copies and distribution is available upon request. The Flipside is officially recognized as Campus Media by the UWEC Student Senate.


Staff meetings are Wednesdays at 6pm in Davies 220, Pine Room.  Anyone interested in joining the staff is welcome to attend these meetings.  We will also be distributing new issues of The Flipside every other week after these meetings.

Layout meetings are every other Sunday at noon in McIntyre Library.  During these meetings, staff members will review submissions and compile the new issue.
